RASCOM is a Pan-African Satellite Communication Organization, created from the will of African Governments and States, and set up in order to bridge the digital divide between the continent and the rest of the world using satellite telecommunications. To overcome the challenges of this digital divide and the opening up of rural areas in Africa, the member States of the Oganization of African Union (currently African Union) agreed to establish a satellite telecommunications system as part of an enhanced telecommunications network for Africa, intended to provide expanded telecommunications and brocasting services to all African countries to help bridge the digital divide with the rest of the world.
