Project Lead: Sponsorship and Social Development.

I am an Electrical Engineer by profession and has been a wikimedian since 2008. I can be contacted for any discussions around sponsorship negotiations and any potential community development opportunities that this competition can assist in.

Wiki Loves Monuments will be conducted in all South African Provinces. This will give Wikimedia-ZA an opportunity to interact with communitities and individuals from different walks of life. My job is to ensure that all the communitites we come into contact with benefit from this competition in some way. This national exercise will require a lot of funding to make it a success, we have and are busy in engagements and discussions with natural stake holders with regards to partnerships and joint ventures.
