I am originally from Morocco. I live and work in the US currently. I have over twenty years experience in development and relief work in Africa and the Middle East. I am a trained mechanical engineer with field experience in water and sanitation, agricultural machinery, solar engineering, program design, and monitoring and evaluation. I work for Catholic Relief Services (CRS) and I invite you to a brief visit
I am very interested in how development and relief workers learn. How, as a community of development and relief practitioners, we could learn from our work, document our learning, make it accessible to others, and avoid making the same mistakes from the past. I am also interested in the use of IT technolgy to foster and promote learning. The ultimate goal here is to use knowledge and technolgy to provide the best services to the poor.
I am a news junkie. I like to watch the news and learn what's new in the world. I am fascinated by the sudden advance in science and technolgy and I can spend days reading about it without leaving the comfort of my home.
I am in the process of exploring the use of technolgy for the successful implementation of knowledge management activities.
These are some of the resources I have consulted:
I have been using the sandbox as a lab to experiment with new ideas. You are welcome to take a look!
Take a look at the sub-pages filtering up to the main page.
I welcome your thoughts! In particular, I am interested in hearing about the use of templates. Check this one out!
Nobody should die from hunger and disease because knowledge available in one part of the world is not accessible to other parts of the same world.
I spent time today explaining to a colleague of mine at work how wiki works. I was quite pleased to be able to offer help to a friend. We are both interested in knowledge management and the use of technolgy to support learning. It looks like Wiki has great potential to offer to our community. I added a Wiki link to the share point of our departement. The next step will be to create a user page similar to this one and invite my colleagues to visit and leave feedback for me. I plan to start a wiki community over time.
Feedback & Notes from my WikiNeighbours
- Great! I see you started populating your User Page. I'll be glad to help anytime :-) --Gladys Gahona C. 14:55, 28 October 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. I am now working in the sandbox and I might need help with that. Friday was a very hectic day for me and I did not have time to go through tutorial 5. I am doing that right now. More on this in a little while.
- Wonderful!! Welcome to the WE Family. You are doing great. Lets know how we may be of assistance in this great journey. ~~Cheers. --Victor P. K. Mensah 16:58, 2 November 2009 (UTC)
Thank you. You are very kind. I posted a question on the Google group discussion. Please take a look. I will post on the the Wiki discussion page as well.

- Hey Driss, I am here... I see [[Image:of me-Driss.jpg|thumbnail|right]]. The code is perfect, you are including a pipe per parameter, you are instructing the wiki to make the image float to the right. . --Gladys Gahona C. 20:02, 4 November 2009 (UTC)
