Born in the Oshikoto region in northern Namibia, David is currently completing his final year of honours degree in Mechanical Engineering. This techno savvy gentleman is passionate about helping other people, especially those in remote rural areas with little or no access to modern technology. He sees Africa Code Week as a tremendous opportunity to help bridge the digital divide and facilitate ICT learning for those who need it most.
Dickson has worked for the UNESCO in Windhoek as a Consultant for Education for Sustainable Development and Social and Human Sciences. He also implemented a project entitled "UNESCO YouthMobile" with a goal to empower youth with the skills and confidence to develop mobile apps for sustainable development.
Passionate about youth and skills development, Dickson believes that ICTs and mobile technologies have the potential to reduce youth unemployment, income inequalities and poverty. He also believes that women empowerment in the mobile and ICT industry is key to sustainable development in Africa.
