Two volunteers are needed to assist the Web Foundation team on the 1st Alliance For Affordable Internet (A4AI – http://www.a4ai.org) Nigeria Multi-stakeholder Forum, which will take place in Abuja at the Chelsea Hotel – Central Area on Tuesday, 11th March 2014. A4AI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Ministry of Communication Technology (MCT) in October 2013. The MoU calls on A4AI to support Nigerian stakeholders in contributing inputs towards the development of policy and regulation designed to reduce the cost of Internet services and increase access in Nigeria.
A4AI is a diverse global coalition committed to driving down the cost of Internet access in less developed countries. The Forum will draw together a wide range of key stakeholders, including the Minister of Communication Technology, the Hon. Omobola Johnson; senior officials from the Nigerian Communications Commission (NCC); sectoral Ministries and other government agencies; industry representatives; leading Nigerian academics and researchers; civil society organizations; and members of the media.
The volunteers would be helping with event registration and other logistical tasks throughout the day. They are happy to reimburse for travel costs and there will be breakfast and lunch. Report time: 7:30am
