Open Switch Africa is an advocacy organisation that recognizes the importance of access to data, research materials and education in Africa. The various advantages of openess in these fields have made our purpose streamlined towards making impacts in Data, Education and research works. Our target is to encourage free flow of information (Data, research publication, educational materials etc.) that may be beneficial for the masses for self development as well as advancement in research and technology across all walks of life. This is a fundamental principle for bridging knowledge gaps between the privileged and underprivileged communities. We therefore have a vision to reach that potential where students have access to quality basic education regardless of their financial strength, every individual has access to the necessary information data to be the best at their chosen profession and businesses have access to data that can aid potential growth.
