Biography

My name is Wilson Masaka Magambo. I am also known as  Wilsenx, Captainy, Coach, Oruma, Champion, Willy and Maja depending on whom I am interacting with. I'm a Web developer/ designer, IT Trainer and Football coach from Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. I have worked with NGO's and youth groups in the areas of web design, Skill development, Community development, Peer education and youth empowerment programs for more than a decade.

I run a community centre called Wilsen Initiative (Wi) (www.wilseninitiative.wordpress.com) which seeks to Inspire, Connect and Educate (ICE) youth in skills and knowledge that address gaps within the society, especially amongst the youth in informal settlements. Our greatest tools at Wilsen Initiative (WI) is Talent and Skills utilization through which we  encourage young people to believe in themselves and be agents of change, using the  philosophy of change that starts from within.

Through  vast community networks and my active participation in Education For Sustainable Development (ESD) and using football and ICT as the  tool, I commit to be being an ambassador in the dissemination of  information to the grassroots level. I’m a passionate global citizen and I embrace diversity through interaction with diverse communities. I have lived in Zanzibar for seven months, Germany two months, in Norway for a three week exchange program in 1997, 1998 and 1999 respectively and many more.

My aspirations
I would love to build on these experiences by combining my passion for sports, leadership, technology and youth empowerment with my interest in interacting, and sharing knowledge with people from different cultures and backgrounds towards making the World a better place.

Interests and Hobbies: Football, Socializing, Technology, Internet, Cultural Exchange, Design, Sports For Development, Youth empowerment, Art, Creativity, Reading, Volunteer-ship, Programming, Coaching, Mentor-ship, Training and Leadership.
