  24. 24. Working with universities in Korea and beyond Step 3: Promoting OCW for East Africa in Kenya  KOCWC will work together with Handong Global University who will hold a conference on OCW for the developing world as a part of the 10 day long “Global Entrepreneurship Training” Program in East Africa during July 2011.
