About Me

My name is Dave. Starting from March 2009 I have gone with Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO) to Opuwo in Namibia for two years as an IT Specialist / Advisor working for the Ministry of Health and Social Services.

Most Frequently Asked Questions Thus Far…


Because I can and so I can have an adventure, get away from the UK for a bit, save the orphans, change the world do something new and hopefully positive.

What?? [Splutter] What do you possibly have to offer?

Well my boundless enthusiasm and can-do attitude of course! Combined with the fact that I do know a bit about computers. (Normally met with derision and mirth)

VSO? Living in a mud hut?

Well actually I should have a nice flat with hot water and electricity (for the most part). I shall cope with my life of poverty and isolation virtue and reflection as I cope with all of life’s challenges; badly and with shouting well and with patience.
