Dear Madam Chairman,

You have our support for this proposal-Creation of a Development Fund.

This has always been our call that, ICANN makes funding available for African full integration into the ICANN process. As it is today, the visibility given to ICANN in Africa is from AFRALO and whose members are majorly from the Civil Society. In this wise, I think time has come for we to access fund to carry  out more activities on the ICANN process to encourage more interest and awareness about ICANN in Africa.

For those going to Toronto, I wish you all well as I missed the deadline for the application-I did not get any reminded from ICANN as usual for Toronto.

Hopefully, South Africa 2013 is around the corner and may I suggest that AFRALO begin in earnest to prepare a much more better outing than Senegal-I mean we should improve upon what have started in Dakar. To which I should suggest that, the AFRALO Capacity building should not just be for the ALS that must be at the event but for local civil society groups that we should invite to attend the events and should benefit from our own experience, to which will give ICANN more visibility about its process. From the three ICANN Conferences I have been opportune to attend, apart from members of the ICANN community, very little or no participants attend from the ordinary local community.

Once again I hope you all are well wherever you are.

Best regards.

Hello All,

Regarding the AFRALO-AfrICANN joint meeting in Toronto, the theme proposed
by Mohamed Bashir on ICANN African Strategy and seconded by many of us, is
a very good and timely one.  However, as the ASWG is asking for inputs on
the same theme, for the same period and from the same community, I don’t
think it would be a good idea to run an almost parallel consultation on it.

Therefore, I would like to suggest for your appreciation  “*the creation of
a development Fund” initiated by ICANN*, to support the developing
countries’ active participation in the whole ICANN process and to
facilitate their integration in the Internet domain industry .  This fund
could be supported by other partners and its management style would have to
be defined

Please provide your feed-back as soon as possible and not later than
Thursday 20 September 2012

Thank you all and best regards,
