I recently offered people on AFRIK-IT a copy of the Acacia Initiative Summary
document if they wrote to me, outlining the connectivity programme for
SubSaharan Africa. I was swamped with requests and made a number of useful
contacts in the process. Thank you for the interest shown.
In the meantime, the IDRC has placed improved and updated documentation about
the Acacia Initiative on its website.
This can be found at www.idrc.ca/acacia
Those who have the summary document can find out which projects are going
ahead under the Acacia banner. Those who do not, can get the documentation
there. There is also the opportunity from the website to subscribe to the
Acacia distribution list.
I will be on leave from today, so please hold any queries until 8 Jan.
While I wish to be sensitive to the many Faiths of AFRIK-IT subscribers, may
I also extend Christmas and New Year wishes to those who observe these dates.
