How's your month so far? Ours started off on such an eventful note that it seemed like we forgot all about you. We can't forget you, can we? You're our family. So, we were recently in San Jose for Facebook's annual conference, F8 and also in Kigali with other hubs to create an Africa Innovation Policy Manifesto. Those trips took some of our attention.

Back to business. Here are some updates we've got for you:
