Am taking up a small ICT consultancy job at the ministry of education headquatters in kenya :
Yes am in Nairobi for two months for sure now.if there is some extension,i will take it :: No am not a town - life kind of person.i have a project am doing in one of the islands of lake victoria :: And there is the Suba Centre which I have to set up on a firm foundation of sustainability.Commitment is just one aspect of the sustainability-- actually the strongest one :: My long term wish ?live happy till I die peacefully and give good education to my children ::
I do one on one training for senoir education managers and also develop training modules :: Nothing is greater than joy.Try sadness and the misery that comes with it and you will see
Pam, We seem to be thinking about the same thing, and that is very good.I also concur with Tom about the apparent twist in the violence . The bringadadge that we are seeing ,stems from a debilitating anger which is due to a build-up of emotions over time.
The post election troubles are not a Raila - Kibaki affair. This is a reaction to the injustice done to the Kenyan voter who kindof felt that some reprieve to their situation would come through the electoral process.believe you me , The people are keenly watching the outcome of the Mediation and should no appropriate solution bases on justice and truth not see the light of day, i fear we will be plunged into the Dark ages. Woe unto Kenya if this ever happens.
Peace Centres/Telecentres or whatever we chose to call them is a noble idea of going about solving this problem.It is very true like in n any conflict, there is the presenting issue and the emmerging issues. The former in this case is the alleged rigging( the spark) while the bigger one is the myriad of injustices kenyans of different ethno-political persuation have had to live with.(the fuel) This is more of a class struggle.Too bad politics innkenya has been ethnicised.
Am a very strong believer in ICT4D.Major world economies today are Information Technology driven.Here in Africa, Rwanda has already become a ICT hub ( just look at the peace and tranquility they enjoy after the genocide? We cannot undescore the role of ICT in creation of new jobs, new markets ,new revenue and secure livelihoods for millions of otherwise idle Kenyan youths who only look at their- well -to -do technosavy relatives with jealosy. This is the basis of the vision of my programme Reaching the Unreached.
The peace Centres will go a long way in reaching this critical mass .My only reservations at the moment is onthe issue of land for such centres. Perhaps it would be good to try identify existing but moribund public structures like Playing fields, cooperative societies ,Market places etc, whie involving the local authorities so that the issue of unlimited acess and ownership is put into perspective.
How about developing a project strategy that revovles around several activities as some practical steps :
Now the challange is how to get our act together while appreciating the different strengths each of us have ,develop some worklplan and have Those with a passion for this to coalesce around it .
