The workshop is being organised jointly by the International Science Council‘s Regional Office for Africa and the International Astronomical Union‘s Office of Astronomy for Development. Both organisations are supported by the South African Department of Science and Innovation and the South African National Research Foundation.

We are immensely grateful to several other partners and individuals who have come on board to bring their expertise to the table. The logos of these organisations can be seen on the home page and individuals who have volunteered to serve on the SOC can be seen here.
