africanDRONE is a Pan-African network aimed at empowering drone pilots, operators and journalists who are using drones for social good, through skills development, resource sharing, advocacy and networking opportunities for members.
aD is incubated and supported by Code for Africa, and has a presence in Cape Town, Tanzania and Kenya, with members from across the continent. aD is developing an on-the-ground presence in Kenya to facilitate growth of the organisation in East Africa. aD wants to be the primary catalyst and change agent in the UAV-for-good space in Africa.
The East African hub will be managed by the aD ExCo Regional Fellow, whose focus will be on identifying strategic organisations, institutions, and individuals for affiliation/partnership, and then spearheading recruitment. Institutional partners are what will help aD build its member services, create credibility amongst funders / commercial operators, and underpin any advocacy/lobbying.
