"A passionate community change agent"
My name is Eric Kimori.
I am an emerging social leader and community projects manager. A passionate innovator and change agent, working to improve the living standards of people in rural and marginalized areas. A multi-talented social innovator and budding writer with over ten years experience in community projects management.
I am the founder and Executive Director of Complitkenya, a non profit organization promoting computer literacy and access to ICT for rural and remote areas in Kenya.
At the helm of Complitkenya, I have steered the organization to establish five community ICT resource centres in rural Kenya. The centres have been very instrumental in promoting access to knowledge and information for locals around the centres. At least 200 community members have successfully completed a course in basic computer skills.
I have also led Complitkenya to plan and host three 24 hours global education hackathon events. The events were conducted in collaboration with other education change makers and stakeholders from around the world in at least 25 countries. The organization was the first to host such events in Kenya.
I also have an interest in writing, since I have published some materials before such as poetry.
