first priority of this project is to list and promote Upcoming Events
to become the largest collection of Upcoming Events
Serving Africa - these events would include conferencing,
exhibitions, workshops, seminars, training, festivals, sport and any
other event serving Africa.
local perspective, knowing what events are happening, in any given
community across the continent, will enhance and encourage local
support for these events.
project, aptly called Upcoming Events Serving Africa,
uses a uniquely designed and very user-friendly MySQL database for the
capturing and dissemination of this valuable information. This
collective database of events throughout the World will be made available
to the public via easy access search options such as mobile phones via
SMS; the Internet; latest touch-screen technology in shopping malls;
call centres; information centres; community centres; government
offices and any other medium available.
order to ensure the widest possible reach, the Upcoming Events
Serving Africa project recognises the value of Community
Information Services and will make this information available to
business associations that serves community development. The project
therefore provides local listing service providers with a useful link
from the Upcoming Events Serving Africa database,
free of charge.
Foundation for the Development of Africa, via the I
Support ‘My Community Development’ project, offers local
governments a ready-to-use, dedicated, local ‘my community’
events, which includes a feature allowing members of the community to
list their events.
governments and local listing service providers are welcome to submit
their detail to The Foundation for the Development of Africa
for inclusion within the Upcoming Events Serving Africa
database. Communities are encouraged to list their events to ensure
these events are visible not only to other African businesses and
entrepreneurs, but also to the growing number of global investors and
corporations investigating the opportunities on the continent.
