I have already participated in helping to the organization sometimes officially and several times informally. During this conference my participation was different and beneficial. I learned a lot in the preparation of conference programs; We could see the result of our work of choice of themes during the conference. and it was really a conference for Africa. We can call that a success. and we hope we have passed the message of UBUNTU philosophy. to see a richer tomorrow for African content free and accessible to all. My only regret is that the sea in cap was very cold for swimming.
