The Kyambogo University of Uganda, a member institution of the National Research and Education Network of Uganda (RENU) is showing what research and educations institutions in Africa can benefit from research and education networks.

Using the high speed and dedicated Internet connectivity from RENU which connects to the regional UbuntuNet Network build with assistance from  the European Union Co-funded Africa-Connect project, students at the University developed a software that optimized administrative process at the institution. The software has since been adapted by several academic and non- academic institutions in Uganda after the pioneering students formed a company which has been distributing the software to these institutions.

This video below tells the story of how, thanks to Research and Education Networks in Uganda, the Kyambogo University graduates have been able to create jobs for themselves and their fellow youths.
