At .zedw (dotzedw) we focus on data-driven reporting and stories that bring out what’s going on in the SADC region. We want to give our audience the best content and tell stories that are hidden within the sea of data across Southern Africa.

We believe that there are many hidden opportunities in Southern Africa, however, most of SADC’s data is offline. dotzedw‘s (.zedw) aim is to bring them online and tell stories about the opportunities in the SADC space. Although these stories will be done with data to show trends and peculiarities in the southern African region.
