Software Freedom Day is a global celebration of Free/Open Source Software (FOSS). Over 1000 volunteer groups in over 120 countries all around the globe will be celebrating the 16th Software Freedom Day (#SFD) this year. This annual celebration supports grass roots efforts to educate the public on the virtues of FOSS and also to encourage its use.

We are dedicated to educating software professionals of the choices that are available in the Open-Source community. We encourage the use of and participation in Open-Source projects. We are not anti-commercial software. However, we are against the blind illusion that commercial software is always a better choice.

 Creating public awareness of the potential impact of open source technology in Ghana
Creating the opportunity for all Ghanaians to enjoy the benefits offered by Open Source Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Drones, Cyber Security and Digitalisation 
Training participants on installation and use of Linux distributions and FOSS tools
 Exhibiting open source software projects
