Our History

African Advanced Level Telecommunications Institute (AFRALTI) is an Inter-Governmental Institute established in 1991 to supplement and spearhead ICT development efforts mainly in English-speaking Africa. Currently the member States that have ratified the Intergovernmental Agreement (IGA) include Lesotho, Kenya, Malawi, Mozambique, Kingdom of Eswatini, Tanzania, Uganda and Zimbabwe, out of the 23 eligible members.

AFRALTI has an African footprint in the continent. The Institute has over the years expanded its tentacles and participants come from most African countries. AFRALTI trains in English speaking African countries through various collaborations. In the French speaking African countries, AFRALTI partners with Ecolé Supérieure Multinationale des Télécommunications (ESMT), a Centre of Excellence (CoE) partner in Dakar, Senegal. In the West African region, our collaboration with Ghana Telecommunication University College (GTUC) enables AFRALTI to reach the countries in that region and through The Institute’s active member States in the Southern and Eastern Africa. The liaisons with all these partnerships enable the Institute to reach out to Africa.
