WHAT WE DO
PATF aims to devise effective methods of
measuring regional and continental output through assessments
conducted at its regional hubs and its central continental hub.
Pan-African Tech Foundation (PATF) Team to explore a CBDC, RegTech and a Fintech Sandbox to meet the needs of the growing digital economy.
PATF offers blockchain education in partnership with various learning institutions and organisations
PATF will ensure all parts of Africa are engaged in its activities through regional hubs in North, South, East, West, Central and Southern Africa.
Traversing the urban rural divide
PATF will aim to close the urban-rural divide and ensure
access to technologies throughout communities within the
African continent. Indeed, technology can be used to address the unsustainable urbanization in African cities by supporting economic and digital growth in rural communities (currently over 70% of Africa’s population lives in rural communities) as the current influx into cities from rural areas is unsustainable. PATF’s success will largely be measured by its ability to extend technology to people living in non-urban areas, closing the digital gap with cities, and contributing to the regeneration of such areas. To do so, PATF will engage with all entities and public sector organisations with responsibilities to extend socio-economic development to rural areas.
