If you have great talents in the world of ICT, you can apply to become an Appfrica Fellow.
The Appfrica Fellows program is designed in the spirit of GeekCORPS. The idea is to allow dedicated, talented and enthusiastic programmers to come to Uganda to work with a staff of equally talented and motivated local developers to focus on knowledge and skill transfer. Men and Women alike are encouraged to apply.
Appfrica is a small organization completely privately funded. It was originally bootstrapped by founder Jon Gosier, before we joined our partner Kuv Capital in January of 2009. We are a for-profit organization that operates under the philosophy that truly sustainable progress in various regions of Africa will come from less dependency on foreign aid money, and more accountability within local communities. As such, we invest in local entrepreneurs who are interested in creating solutions or products for their communities. This supports local economies and creates truly sustainable jobs. As a Fellow, your contributions will have immediate results in supporting the overall program while also having long-lasting unquantifiable results in the form of knowledge-share.
How it Works
Fellows will come to Kampala, Uganda for one month (or longer depending on your desire), and work alongside a staff of talented programmers helping to support projects while also offering mentoring and peer-to-peer advice. To participate, you’ll need to be able to at least pay your own way to Uganda.
