Resources 

We connect African students, researchers, and practitioners to resources that can aid their academic and professional development. We do this by sharing information on free resources and materials for academics, and distributing calls for conferences, funding, and other opportunities through our digital platforms. Our resource center is targeted at early career African researchers, regardless of their gender or nationality.
