AFRICA@home is a website for volunteer computing projects which allow your computer to contribute to African humanitarian causes.
There is a huge potential for volunteer computing to help solve pressing health and environmental problems facing the developing world.
AFRICA@home addresses these problems by providing a common framework for volunteer computing projects that focus on African needs.
An important goal of AFRICA@home is to involve African students and African universities in the development and running of these volunteer computing projects.
The first application being developed for AFRICA@home is called MalariaControl.net. This application models the way malaria spreads in Africa and the potential impact that new anti-malarial drugs may have on the region.
Keep up the great work. Look what you've accomplished!
