can you please be more specific about this ?
computer networking in Africa? Africa is very big and I suggest to you to
think about phase one and two etc....
I knox a lot of project with this title " networking in Africa" and I think
we have to focus on some countrys or regions in order  to gave a added value
to the project...

Anyway... my name is Nejib ABIDA from Tunisia and I am involved in some
activity concerning networking and may be I can give my contributions...

See RINAF (bad exemple)
Machraknet (networking for the arab region in the Machrek) !
Maghrebnet (the maghreb region)

Now we are speaking about RAITnet( (Regional Arab Information Technologies
Network) ....

So, let me know what is this project and may be i can give my contributions !

Have a nice day !
