About the Africa Mradi
The Africa Mradi is a programme that leverages Mozilla’s role as stewards of the open web to promote innovation grounded in the unique needs of users in African countries. Our approach to this programme is driven by local needs, to support local voices and entrepreneurs, and to solve local problems. Our goals are to generate product development, build community, build capacity, and produce a meaningful impact on the African internet ecosystem.
