Masamu program, a US-Africa partnership


The primary goal of the Masamu (note that “masamu” means mathematics in Southern Africa) Program is to enhance research in the mathematical sciences and related areas within the Southern Africa Mathematical Sciences Association (SAMSA) institutions and beyond through promotion of international research collaboration. The Masamu Program was established in 2010 with the assistance of the National Science Foundation through an Au-burn University-SAMSA Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with particular emphasis on increasing and sustaining research collaborations between mathematicians in the US and the Southern Africa region (Angola, Botswana, Eswatini, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, South

Africa, Tanzania, Zambia, and Zimbabwe). The strong collaborative support from African and US universities has made the Masamu Program viable and able to expand

its reach.
