What do you do for a living nowadays?
I would describe myself as an evangelist for my innovation of village noticeboards as an alternative/addition to the internet (*Editor’s Note: Official website still under construction) for rural communities in the developing world. I have run a mini supermarket and am currently a small scale farmer.
Is “doing good” a key reason why you chose this job?
I developed the leo pamoja (“together today”) communicating villages because of the frustration of knowing that there was valuable knowledge in the air that the community in my village could not access. Doing good to me is providing a place for people who have been unable to access knowledge and connect with each to finally be able to do that. Access to information is life-transforming in a rural village. Hence, with my innovation I hope to bring change in the community and that’s exciting.
