Nice to see you as KM4dev member and like to share with u. I am Fraol Lemma. I am working for Oromia chamber of Commerce and Sectoral Associations as A Secretary General and A development advisor for HWK-German based project.
My name is Ewen Le Borgne. On top of being a KM4Dev core group member and editor of the KM4Dev journal, I work for the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) in Addis Ababa. I am contacting you because I saw that you are also based in Ethiopia.
Me and my colleague Peter Ballantyne would like to stimulate the cooperation of all KM/KS and communication specialists in the development sector, particularly but not only agriculture. As part of this we would like to organise a first event in late January to invite all such motivated people to come and join, mingle and share. We hope that this will mark the start of more regular cooperation among all of us KM/KS/comms people in Ethiopia.
If you are interested, could you please contact me by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) so I can send you the invitation for that gathering? There will most likely be also an announcement on the KM4Dev Ning and mailing list very soon.
