ABOUT

SAFNOG

"BUILDING & SUSTAINING REGIONAL COMMUNITIES"

As Africa develops her regional infrastructure, it has becomes more important to be able to build and sustain regional communities in support of the same. While not intended as a replacement for existing mailing fora, SAFNOG hopes to be able to provide a discussion forum, and build a community for matters specific to the sub-region.

MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE

SAFNOG is open to all ISP's and Internet related organisations from around the world. As such it has no owners, just a small group of dedicated individuals who look after the mailing list and organise the regular meetings.
