Kijiji  \key-gee-gee\ 
: meaning “village” in Swahili

This name was chosen because it captures the essence of what we are creating - a site where people can connect with others in their local community.
 
It's no accident: If you look down at your keyboard you'll noticed that the letters k, i and j are located next to each other. So you see it's all about local for us.
