Open Source Empowers

Empowering individuals and fostering inclusive communities through Open Source Software.

What We Do


Stimulates Local Economies

By developing local Open Source expertise, we enable communities to save money on software and invest in other critical areas like infrastructure, education, and healthcare. This helps to stimulate economic growth and create sustainable development opportunities.


Inclusive Software

Open Source software does not discriminate and provides equal opportunities for everyone. It allows individuals from all backgrounds to contribute, learn, and grow, thereby promoting inclusivity and diversity in the tech community.


Guided Training Process

We follow a structured three-step approach to training. Starting with basic education at large events, we move on to more advanced certification for experienced participants, and finally, we establish local knowledge centers to provide ongoing, affordable training.


Community Building

We establish local communities through on-site events where we teach the basics of Open Source software. These events help create a network of local enthusiasts and professionals who continue to meet and grow together, ensuring sustained development and support.


International Collaboration

We partner with international organizations like ITGilde to bring global expertise to local communities. This collaboration enhances our training programs and ensures that local talent can participate in the worldwide Open Source ecosystem on an equal footing.


Open Source Consultation

Our local knowledge centers serve as one-stop shops for all things Open Source. They offer consulting services to local enterprises, governments, and non-profit organizations, helping them transition to and benefit from Open Source solutions.
