The African Virtual Open Initiatives and Resources (AVOIR) project is a collaborative effort among several African higher education institutions to support capacity building in Free and Open Source software engineering. It is about harnessing the enormous potential that exists within Africa and the African Diaspora to create a core of open source software developers who are able, through software development activities, to create educational and business opportunities that contribute to development on the continent. AVOIR will attempt to build a core of developers in African institutions, mainly universities but also other organisational structures.
