I am an open technologies community training and resource development engineer, 
working to serve and strengthen my community. As a South Sudanese refugee living and working in Uganda 
I lead workshops in device repair, IT and access to information, sustainable development and life skills 
training across numerous communities in Northern Uganda and South Sudan. Often in cooperation with 
national and international organisations my goals are towards effective peacebuilding. Through research, 
innovation and application of open source and IT skills for community development, I act as a lead 
consultant in the use of the #ASKotec – Access to Skills and Knowledge open tech emergency case, a hands-
on training kit for off-grid and remote region, aimed at the improvement of quality of life, knowledge sharing
and strengthening of education.
