The First Web Foundation is a registered non-profit organisation based in South Africa and legally registered under the Nonprofit Act, 1997, of South Africa. Our Registration Number is 234-604 NPO.

Our ambitious target is to help 10,000 small community-based and under-resourced nonprofit organizations in Africa, especially in sub-Saharan Africa, by 2030.

We are targeting small nonprofits that are making an impact in their communities – or with the potential to do so – with free websites, social media management, and other related digital technology solutions, both web-based and mobile-based. We use non-cash grant-making to reach out and support these small nonprofits.

We seek to support and promote digital initiatives, particularly web and mobile, in order to increase their work and impact in both rural and urban African communities. We do this in order to address the myriad challenges faced by the nonprofit sector in the region.

We are guided by the following mission and visions statements, objectives and activities:
