How I would like to participate in ict@innovation: 

I am looking at forming partnerships with International bodies and local African SMEs so as to achieve the vision of FOSSFA of spreading and promoting the uptake of Open Source in Africa.

FOSS Certification Manager
My FOSS related Project(s): 

I am leading FOSS advocacy in Kenya as the chairman of the Linux Professional Association of Kenya where we have several engagements with the Government while trying to influence policy towards FOSS. I am also the FOSSFA Liaison person for East Africa
I am the owner of LANet Consulting, where we offer FOSS solutions and training based on the Linux Professional Institute Certification (LPIC). We also deliver information security solutions based on open source software.
Since 2010, I am engaged with the ict@innovation programme of FOSSFA and GIZ as the contracted manager for the "regional training of trainer programme on Linux Administration Certification". In this project, I spearhead FOSSFA efforts towards the promotion of affordable training and certification in FOSS for African SMEs, development of learning materials and training methods and organization of training for trainers. For more information on this area of assignment, please check xxx
Disclaimer: Since 2011, The the Linux Professional Institute (LPI) has given me the role of representing them as the Master Affiliate for East Africa. This entails promoting the LPI activities in the region which involves promoting the LPI certification in East Africa. The two assignments are independent from each other, but share the overarching goal of expanding the community of Linux Administrators in East Africa (and in Southern Africa for the ict@innovation role). For more on the role of Master Affiliate for East Africa for LPI, please check the LPI website here.

I am looking for: 

Support in FOSS capacity building for training especially in Linux System Administration skills.
