Today, the Internet Society issued a news release announcing that it is
giving 120,000 USD to the West and Central African Research and Education
Networks (WACREN) to support African Research and Education Networks’
(NREN) work in increasing their skills and improving their Internet
infrastructure. WACREN and the Internet Society will be working with
Ubuntunet and Arab States Research and Education Network (ASREN) to
implement this project. This is the largest contribution that the Internet
Society is making to African NRENs after its donation of networking
equipment worth more than 170,000 USD to WACREN and ASREN back in 2013
