Reigniting the Open Source Revolution in Zambia and Africa


Since 2018, the Living Open Source Foundation, based in Lusaka, Zambia, has been dedicated to empowering individuals through Open Source Software education and consultancy. We focus on providing accessible, affordable training and expert consultancy in open-source technologies such as Kubernetes, Linux, and more within Zambia and across the region.

Empowering Through Education


We believe Open Source is a pathway to opportunity and equality. By offering free or affordable courses, we remove financial barriers, ensuring inclusivity and accessibility. This approach opens doors to career opportunities and drives economic development.

Building a Supportive Community

Our diverse team of professionals, educators, and volunteers collaborate with local and international partners to deliver high-quality training and build sustainable Open Source communities. Together, we create a supportive environment where knowledge is shared and everyone has a chance to grow.

Open Source Consultation


Our local pool of Open Source experts is a one-stop shop for all things Open Source. We offer consulting services to local enterprises, governments, and non-profit organizations, helping them transition to and benefit from Open Source solutions.

Our consultation services include :

  • Assessment and Planning
  • Implementation Support, training
  • Capacity Building
  • Ongoing Support

By leveraging our expertise, organizations can reduce costs, enhance security, and foster innovation through the adoption of Open Source technologies.


Impact Across Africa

We have trained hundreds and established vibrant local open-source communities across Africa, including Zambia, Malawi, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cameroon, and other countries, through our events and training programs. Our work promotes innovation and contributes to the global Open Source ecosystem.


The Living Open Source Foundation is more than an organization, it’s a movement towards a more equitable world.

Join us in making technology accessible to all, driving innovation and fostering economic growth.
