WIRE AFRICA is an international organization committed to breaking Africa's millennia long curse of poverty by providing solutions to foster economic development. We are creating a comprehensive [[business plan for Africa]], based on the latest in Information and Communications Technology (ICT) as infrastructure. The plan naturally addresses the ways in which poverty can be ended at a profit for all, but does not stop there. It addresses the ways in which technology is necessary to support the full range of human rights necessary for sustainable economic development.
We start from all recognized human rights, including the right to education, and add more that should be recognized. These include a right to health care, to information, to support of languages and cultures in software, to control of the Intellectual Property of cultural heritages, and most of all a right to speak in the national and global conversations about our shared future.
