Early supporters from 1993 to 2002

We would like to acknowledge the donors who were the first supporters of our work: the International Development Research Center (IDRC), the Ford Foundation, the Open Society Institute, the Canadian International Development Agency CIDA) and the MacArthur Foundation. We appreciate their commitment and the risks they have taken to support the growth and diversification of our innovative network and continue to support us in the new century.

香蕉视频app安卓IDRC was one of our earliest supporters, providing funds needed to launch the APC Women’s Networking Support Programme (APC WNSP) activities around the world during the lead-up to the 1995 UN World Conference on Women. IDRC also provided support to some of the earliest work promoting connectivity through a network of store-and-forward notes in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Central and Eastern Europe. IDRC continued to support initiatives of the APC WNSP, as well as the development of our Mission-Driven Business Planning Toolkit. IDRC also provided start-up support to our internet rights work through the Global ICT Policy Monitor project, with a focus on activities in Latin America and Africa. In addition, APC’s Betinho Communications Prize to recognise socially meaningful uses of the internet was funded by IDRC for the first two years, along with partial support for the APC Africa Hafkin Prize and, in 1995, for the APC Council Meeting in Brazil.

香蕉视频app安卓With trends in donor funding shifting overwhelmingly towards project support and away from institutional support, APC is particularly appreciative of the programme support that the Ford Foundation provided from 1997 to 2002. The Ford Foundation also supported the APC Council Meeting in South Africa in 1997.

/Soros Foundation

OSI’s initial support for APC’s work was focused on Central and Eastern Europe with an emphasis on strengthening the capacity of APC members and partners in the region. OSI provided substantial support to the APC Toolkit project, which produced the APC ActionApps. In 2000-2001 OSI provided support for APC’s internet rights work in Europe. Throughout our relationship, OSI has played a key networking role by linking APC to related initiatives and providing us with valuable critical input.

香蕉视频app安卓CIDA supported APC’s work from the early days through a diversity of partnership projects with Web Networks, an APC member in Canada – including cost-recovery systems for email management for emerging African networks; support of APC WNSP’s preparatory work for the 1995 UN World Conference on Women; and facilitation of NGO participation in the 1997 Global Knowledge Conference in Toronto, Canada. In 2000 and 2001, CIDA supported the development of community radio exchange tools using APC’s ActionApps and Beijing+5 Section J activities to advocate for support of women’s use of ICTs.

Like CIDA, the MacArthur Foundation supported APC’s early network development through a grant to IGC Networks in the United States, which enabled the set-up of grass-roots non-profit email providers throughout the Americas, the former Soviet Union, and Asia. MacArthur also made a substantial contribution to the development of APC’s ActionApps.

World Bank

香蕉视频app安卓The World Bank Institute facilitated APC’s participation in the Global Knowledge II Conference in 2000. The programme of the World Bank supported APC’s Online Resource Centre, aimed at building an interactive, multilingual web clearinghouse of internet training-related materials to support and promote strategic use of ICTs for development and social justice.

HIVOS first provided support towards the activities of APC’s Africa Women’s Programme in preparing for Beijing+5, and subsequently supported our internet rights work through the Global ICT Policy Monitor project, with a focus on activities in Latin America and Africa.

and (Oxfam Netherlands)

香蕉视频app安卓Both foundations contributed towards the activities of APC’s Africa Women’s Programme in preparing for Beijing+5 in 2000.

– Evangelischen Entwicklungsdienst

EED provided early funding to train English- and French-speaking African women in how to run internet-based solidarity campaigns.

Non-financial contributions

Both Carnegie Mellon University and Global X Change provided APC with strategic planning consultants to work with us in the development of our Mission-Driven Business Planning Toolkit, funded by IDRC.  Lundeen & Associates provided us with multiple free copies of their software in the early stages of our APC ActionApps software development.

facilitated the participation of many APC member staff in ISOC Developing Country technical training workshops during the 1990s.
