"OpenCorps is a volunteer initiative led by the ROI Africa E-Learning Network in support of global efforts to promote Open Science in Africa. The vision of the program is to sensitize Africa and to generate interest in Open Science most especially in the Open Knowledge trifecta which are Open Education, Open Access and Open Data in an effort to advocate and influence policies that will increase literacy rate, encourage research & development and eliminate legal frameworks that stifles collaborations between scholars and educators. The program aims to do this by marching a strong team of young motivated advocates and educators across Africa who will ultimately becoming vehicles for social reforms in their respective countries."
