Brands encouraged to rebrand to dotAfrica domain names
Brands encouraged to rebrand to dotAfrica domain names

The .africa (dotAfrica) gTLD offers a unique opportunity to individuals, governments, companies and others to associate their products, services and information with the continent and people of Africa. As major brands like Absa register, use and promote .africa (dotAfrica) domain names, the effect on commerce, education, health and other sectors will no doubt be profound as Africans use their new domain to unite the continent's internet community.

#Mandela100: What NPOs wish corporates knew before Mandela Day

"It was 2pm on Mandela Day at the after-care centre. The children were getting ready to go home when suddenly, 80 volunteers from a large local bank arrived, unannounced. We didn't know who they were, but they wanted to use their 67 minutes to volunteer with us. We appreciated the effort, but we had to turn them away, partly because the children were overwhelmed by the many unfamiliar faces, but mostly because we had no time to prepare the volunteers or the children."
