Profile Information

Did you take the Internet Governance Capacity Building Programme - IGCBP from DiploFoundation? If so, in which year? Who was tutoring you?
Just completed in May 2010 the online 3 months course and took part in the face to face Training in Ghana
Where did you ¨discover¨ this Community portal?

What are you currently doing today and projects you have related to Internet governance?

I also help schools develop good ICT policy within the Gambia. Am also presently the President of the INformation Technology Association of the Gambia and hope to enlighten my colleagues more on IG issues
In which ways the capacity building provided by Diplo has helped you and your community in Internet governance issues? (Question only for IGCBP Alumni)
Giving me the opportunity to take IG into schools, and having a clear structure of how to get young people to look at IG in general. This is very important to me, as within a developing country context it sometimes issues like these go unnoticed, it is important the young ones learn early as they are the digital natives of today's world.

Easier said than done, what actually should make all the boxes tick if we look overall at the multistakeholder model of the Internet governance?  Well simply said and widely written on   it is however in my opinion trying to get all within the sphere of equality to have a level playing field where all voices count.    

However sometimes these do not really happen at national level of Internet Governance especially in developing countries notably Sub Saharan Africa, as…
