Kabissa was a non-profit organization that existed between 1999 and 2018. Its mission was to help African civil society organizations put ICT to work for the benefit of their communities.
Kabissa provided internet services including domain name registration and hosting of websites, email, and mailing lists. It also kept organizations connected with each other and information relevant to their work through a regular email newsletter, organization directory and blog. Kabissa’s workshop program, Time To Get Online, delivered face to face training to organizations, and trained trainers from African organizations who then carried out training programs using the Time To Get Online curriculum.
I am very proud of Kabissa, and am deeply grateful to colleagues, members and partners I had the privilege to work with and learn from during the various stages of Kabissa’s evolution as an organization. We did great things, and helped many organizations throughout Africa to gain access to valuable online services and figure out how to use them.

I created this Kabissa Legacy section on my personal forum to collect materials and stories and to bring together friends and former colleagues who might like to reminisce with me about our wonderful Kabissa experiences. I also use it to provide support to former members seeking to take ownership of domain names registered through Kabissa. Feel very free to sign up and check back often!
