Tonee Ndungu

Originally posted on October 21, 2010

Tonee Ndungu is a media consultant with a specialty in New and Rich Media Tools and Applications. He is the founder of the Wazimba Youth Foundation, which is an African youth IT outreach organization that educates and emphasizes the use of Internet-based media tools and social networks among teens in Africa. He is a leadership motivational speaker, TEDxKibera co-creator, and a social media enthusiast. Tonee heads up the international office of the 1% CLUB in Kenya, which is an online marketplace for small development projects where citizens and companies can contribute 1 percent of their income, time and knowledge to a project of their own choosing. Last year, Tonee started The NAiLAB, a new ICT incubator initiative in Nairobi.
NAiLAB harnesses the simple ideas of the local, rural and technologically-limited visionaries by opening up the opportunity for them to present their ideas to a group of tech-savvy "ideavattors" (idea-innovation-creators) that conceptualize and build the tools to make the simple idea applicable on technology platforms (mobile phones, the Web, etc.). An example of their work is the M-Kulima (M-Farmer) concept — a farmer-friendly and cost effective mobile learning portal that allows farmers to listen to the specific advice they need in real time, at any place and at any time at a nominal price. NAiLAB further supports young technology enthusiasts interested in building businesses from their innovations through incubation by providing business development, market research, legal support, and fund sourcing support set them on their ventures.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
