Bellanet Network Transition Period

Since its creation in 1995, Bellanet has built a sound reputation helping international development organizations use information technology to communicate and collaborate. Since then, the centre of gravity of this virtual network of knowledge management practitioners has shifted southward. What began as a multi-donor Northern-driven entity has become a Southern-driven initiative involving partners in Africa, Asia, and Latin America and the Caribbean. This grant will allow Bellanet to complete its transition into a sustainable and independent network based in the South.
