Hi Adam,

Sorry for the delay. First backgound on Freenet africa:

June 2001 RMS toured South Africa. The tour was aranged and paid for by Pedro 
Buccellato. RMS Asked Pedro to set up a "membership based freesoftware 
organization" in the region. Unfornunately Pedro was almost broke from funding 
the tour. In December 2001 I finished university, and worked as a fulltime 
volunteer, based in Pedro's offices. End of Feb 2002 I had to return to the UK 
because I could not get an SA work permit.

Now: I am working as a vet in Derbyshire, UK. I am looking for a voulnteer to 
work promoting Free Software and Freenet Africa in Southern Africa. I can pay a 
subsistence salary (R5000/month) to suport the volunteer. He/she must be 
commited to Free Software, technically profcient in installing and maintaining  
free software LANs and a competent public speaker.

I would also like to get in contact with everybody who would like to promote 
free software in africa, irrespective of where they themselves are resident.

For more info see the Freenet Africa website http://www.freenetafrica.org

Please could you forward this email to everybody whom you think would like to
