Call me "Ken" as I am always being referred to by my colleagues but my real names are; Kennedy Edwine Onyango,
a fifth son of Mr. Daniel Onyango Mageta of Kasgunga, Mbita, Suba District and the late Mama Hellen Auma of Kakelo-Mikayi,
I begun my elementary education in a rural ill-equipped school where there was poor infrastructure and lack of learning
resources to support learning in the harsh and dry environment with depressed children whose faces tells the sad story of
adverse poverty. In my academic life, I have spent much time outside four-walled classroom due to the misery and poverty
I was brought up in. God had a purpose for my life, since I am a beneficiary of Distance Education (so-called correspondence
study) and today I am a Content Design, Development and Dissemination specialist on ICT-enabled Open and Distance Learning
(ODL) in which I have been involved with the Commonwealth Of Learning (COL), Canada in a number of projects among other internationally recognized institutions.
Having keen interest on working with the unreached and vulnerable members of the society, I have been involved in Youth
and Community Development work as a Leader and Facilitator conducting community based need assessments among other relevant
studies on the nature of poverty, effects and possible means of reduction.
I have extensive experience and wealth of knowledge in application of Information Communication and Technologies
(ICT’s) towards rural communities’ economic development and integration resulting to holistic development. Having served
in some and more of the notable Strategic Planning Committees in Kenya
and international levels leading to start up of many projects under my tenure as a founder and Director of Community
Initiatives and Social Support Organization (CISSO) among other institutions like Education Training and Enterprise Center
