Kabissa is a non-governmental organization founded in 1999 and organized in the United States as a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Their mission is to help African civil society organizations to put Information and Communication Technology (ICT) to work for the benefit of their communities.
Their current program is to develop and nurture an online community platform at http://www.kabissa.org that connects people and organizations working in Africa for networking, information sharing and peer learning. The main features of the platform are a searchable organization directory, community blog and monthly member newsletter. They also use it to organize regular Africa Roundtable networking events.
Until 2007 Kabissa provided Internet services including domain registration and website/email hosting. They also developed an Internet training curriculum for African civil society called Time To Get Online which they delivered through a 100+page manual, end-user training workshops and an indepth training-of-trainers program.
