What we Believe

Collaboration between the various national bodies and associations was deemed to be of the utmost importance to exchange expertise and information, as well as to promote the development of the ICT profession.
The idea to unify bodies in the various countries led to the establishment of the pioneering Pan-African confederation that is the TICON Africa, an umbrella organisation that seeks to grow the ICT profession on the continent by working through its member bodies to reach the vast number of practising ICT students and professionals in Africa.

“Culture plays a pivotal role, in influencing people's mind-sets and their readiness to embrace digital transformations. Shifting one's mindset is essential; it requires the ability to both learn and unlearn continuously.”

Herbert Olowo
Chief Information Officer, Stanbic Bank, Uganda.

Words from the Ticon Africa President

TICON Africa is a continental nonprofit organization, which aims to add value to African ICT professional associations through five primary initiatives:

  • Research and development on the African continent’s ICT needs
  • Publications of ICT-related activities in various countries for knowledge sharing of best practices
  • Education to build the capacity of ICT professionals in various countries through professional qualifications
  • Networking events such as annual conferences that bring ICT professionals from different African countries together and share knowledge
  • Revenue mobilization to build the capacity of ICT professionals

We add value to our member associations by helping them develop standards for African ICT professionals and make ICT a worthy career choice to propel the socio-economic development of the continent.

We are poised to connect with all active ICT professional associations in Africa to build a vibrant confederation that will ensure the standardization of professional qualifications, research, publications, events, and regulation reforms. Furthermore, we assist countries without ICT professional associations to establish their own.

Together, we can shape the future of technology in Africa.
