Did you take the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme - IGCBP from DiploFoundation? If so, in which year? Who was tutoring you?
Where did you ¨discover¨ this Community portal?
What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?
My current job at World Vision is as one of the few Global ICT Resource in ICT4Development resource responsible for exploring and supporting adoption and use of internet in education, economic development and health reporting to the directors. I interact with both government and non-government stakeholders in different countries to lobby for more open use of internet as a facilitator to development.
As a private member and head of marketing of Kenya IT and Outsourcing Services, which is the industry body representing ICT players in Kenya, I interact with the government on policy matters related to internet governance though most have been on the commercial angle, I now plan to advocate more on policies about keeping the internet open.
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
- IGCBP has provided me with more insights and backgrounds allowing me to have a better appreciation of the internet ecosystem.
-I've met like minded people and started learning what other regions and organizations are doing to keep internet open. This will save me a lot of energy because I don't have to re-invent the wheel and expect to be more effective.
Please list the names of organizations you are a member of, including hyperlinks for more information when possible.
