Andre du Plessis

Dear Commissioner Kelly

Wow!

InternAfrica would like to express heartfelt gratitude to you, UN Habitat, Vancouver, WUF3 organisers, and IBM.

We could participate through the use of technology. It was strange living the week in Vancouver time, we all feel like we have jetlag in our own city. Clearly nothing like what was experienced at the WUF3! We were excited to participate and share the webcasts with those that don’t have access.

A good few new ideas were shared and we all learnt so much. Plus we have actionable ideas and planning guidelines.

Most importantly we are in this together.

InternAfrica has already worked through your suggestions and are pleased to report we are ‘steady on target’ with the steps laid out. This is inspirational, coupled with the energy and international availability of WUF3, we managed to network with and make new connections with many likeminded organizations.

Wow!

Habitat Jam WUF3 was a life saver for us.

We look forward to being at Nanjing in 2008 to learn and share more success stories.

Thank You
André du Plessis & InternAfricans
