It is established with the purpose of advocating and enhancing e-governance and internet governance activities in Africa and beyond.
In order to successfully execute the mandates of EGIGFA, two other sub entities are registered: Ghana School on Internet Goverance (GhanaSIG) and Internet Governance Club. These sub entities, will among others, assist in outreach and engagement activities on Internet governance issues
EGIGFA will also serve as an avenue to reach out to the various governmental agencies in Africa that are responsible for ensuring effective e-governance issues are handled well to be informed, trained and enlightened on what to do. This is to ensure African countries perform well and get better ratings in the United Nation’s e-governance survey. This survey measures and rates the e-governance performances of member states and the African countries do not have good ratings.
EGIGFA was formed in August 2019, by Raymond, Sarata, Sedem and Jacob. They also serve as the executive committee members of the foundation and its sub-entities.
