About Me (biography or organization description)
While studying computers at Kenyatta University, I never imagined that I would shift focus to telecentres as a means of impacting other lives with the knowledge I acquired. I find passion supporting telecentres in their quest to change communities they serve.

I worked with a telecentre for over 4 years after which I helped found the Kenya Telecentres Link Limited (KenTel), which is the National Telecentre Network in Kenya working with various partners such as CTA,, Microsoft, Taking IT Global and Ugabytes Initiative among others. It works around building capacity of grassroots telecentres to be more effective and efficient in service delivery. I'm now into community development as my new field of study to enable me work effectively with communities.

Should ICT4D Be Sidestreamed or Mainstreamed?

Around the time of the MDGs, ICT4D became the focus for a critical mass of activity; a “sidestreaming” approach that saw specialist ICT4D units arise in a number of international and national organisations. Following the 2005 World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS), this was largely mainstreamed, with specialist units being disbanded or shrinking, and ICT4D expertise…

Hi Cleopa Timon Otieno

Thanks for the resourceful work you continue to render in the development of Africa. I am a development officer from Liberia and I had an ardent desire in using my skill in setting up Telecentre network for Liberia. Liberia Community Telecenters Network Project for Sustainable Development. The Liberia Community Telecenters (LCT) project will involve establishment of a network of at least five telecenters in five counties, to be  managed by the Liberia Chapter of the Internet Society(ISOC-Liberia) and local partners in both the public and the private sector, providing internet connectivity, public telephone, fax and e-mail as well as basic information and a host of ICT applications.

I would greatly appreciate your advice and suggestion in going ahead with this project.

Hello Cleopa, are you going to participate in the photo contest? Given the fact that you work with a telecentre and have a vast experience in telecentre activities, can you please forward some pictures from your telecentre ( taken by you) or else, you can encourage other telecentre operators or users in your community to participate? I am sure their a good experiences you can share with us and that are worth to win reconnection and awards from

Waiting to hear from you!!
