Empowerment through each one, teach one concept.

If you are a son/daughter of the ghettos or rural areas in Uganda and across Africa, and made it out there, I guess you have a great story to tell.

I’m sure you shared a pain that will never be forgotten for your entire life as much as \ things are better now. This is manifested when I find a young man or woman or child who is doing his or her best to make a living or learn a skill which can give them an alternative way of living a life.

Currently as I type this, I can recall the 2 to 4 years I spent using internet cafe and computers of my friends. In the process, I seemed to be selfish to some, aggressive to some and a good person to some. Fortunately, some years fast forward am happily running digital agency which also offers printing services in Kampala, check out gagawala.com

This is where it all begins. I’m able to earn a living and as well as help 6 others earn. But that’s not all, the businesses, organisations and individuals we serve are also able to sustain their ideas and businesses, which maintains the employment and service delivery in the country.

Kansanga, first Ugandan town to publish local content online?

In 2016, I had an opportunity to attend several web and blogger meet-ups in Kampala, Uganda.

With hospitable people, Uganda has over 1000s of tourism businesses contributing millions of dollars to the economy of the country.

Tourism is enabled because of the nature of the country which is gifted with rivers, lakes, hills & mountains, very unique and miracle making hot-springs, wildlife and abundance of the biggest bird species on this planet!

However, every part of Uganda has something that the world doesn’t know about or will never know about unless it’s shared on internet where over 4 billions of people end up for information. Continue reading “Kansanga, first Ugandan town to publish local content online?”

Die Matratze und die Europäische Union

Seit etwa zwei Jahren wollten wir eine neue Matratze für unser Bett kaufen (160*200cm). Tine hatte regelmässig morgens “Rücken” und wir schoben es auf die Matratze. Die war schon ein paar Jahre alt und sah auch ein wenig “verlebt” aus. Die alte Matratze war eine Federkernmatratze und wurde durch die Fensteröffnung in das Schlafzimmer transportiert, …

Malen: wie beginnen – wann enden?

Wie kommen meine Bilder eigentlich zustande? Womit beginne ich? Gibt es einen Plan, eine Idee? Ich würde nicht von einem wirklichen Plan sprechen, aber irgendwie geistert mir etwas im Kopf herum und irgendwann muß ich meine Gedanken und Gefühle nach außen bringen und dann fange ich einfach an. Das passiert ehrlich gesagt sehr intuitiv, es […]

Our Politics need hygiene, so is our lives.

download The politics of the land have started, just like a bad disease. Democracy has been a good thing, not to Kenya but but to he who invented it. When the Gold Coast (now known as Ghana) gained independence from Britain 6 March 1957,  Kwame Nkrumah who transformed the country into a republic, with himself as president for life said that there is no independence when other African countries were not Independent. Then, Africa was speaking in one voice. Her desire to get herself out of the hands of the oppressor was great not to imagine. Continue reading "Our Politics need hygiene, so is our lives."

Non-technical explanation of encryption and digital signatures

Having a basic understanding of encryption and digital signatures has become important as history has repeatedly taught us that we can’t trust everyone on the Internet (e.g. Internet service providers, email services etc.). This blog post will try to explain in a non-technical way how encryption and digital signatures work and why something called “private … Continue reading Non-technical explanation of encryption and digital signatures
