I-Network is mainly involved in 3 main activities

1. Knowledge Sharing
ImageI-Network has been carrying out various knowledge sharing activities since 2003. The flagship of these activities are the regular face to face seminars which bring together individuals interested in the ICT4D sector to discuss and share information on various issues that affect the sector in Uganda.

Knowledge Sharing is all about linking people, ideas and organizations to enable information exchange and networking activities. I-Network has done this through focused group meetings, seminars, mailing lists, print publications and research.
