The EPIC Africa network was established in December 2017, as a closely related body to EPIC-N, and has since grown with African cities and their in-situ universities partnering to implement the EPIC Model with their local communities. To date, the model has been successfully piloted in three African cities: Nairobi (Kenya), Lusaka (Zambia) and Durban (South Africa), with representatives from these cities/ universities leading the EPIC Africa network. Following the first African-led training event in Durban in March, 2020, the EPIC Africa network has grown to over ten participating cities/ universities, most of which are busy preparing their first EPIC programmes. The EPIC Model unites the human capital of universities with local governments, and communities, to improve the quality of life and social wealth for all involved. EPIC-N is the nonprofit association of institutions that adopt the award-winning EPIC Model for university-community partnership.
