The Fund for Internet Research and Education (FIRE Africa) allocated 9 grants and 4 awards during the 2016 funding cycle, with over US$450K in funding to deserving initiatives which use the Internet and ICTs so solve challenges within their communities. Since 2011, we have celebrated the award winners at the IGF and we will be honored to have you and your colleagues join us to celebrate the contributions that innovative Internet-based solutions have made to their communities across the global south.

The Seed Alliance is a collaboration between FIRE, FRIDA and ISIF Asia regional grants and awards programs, who together support Internet development across the global south. This collaboration is possible thanks to the generous support from the program partners— the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) of Canada, the Internet Society and the contributions from three Regional Internet Registry partners (AFRINIC, APNIC and LACNIC) as well as many generous regional sponsors.
