About Me

My Name is Frederick NDEGE, a young Kenyan entrepreneur. I am 26 year of age.
Having gone through alot of hardships during my young age, my hope has been to succeed and emerge the winner in everything I do.
During my early schooling age, poverty could not make me a happy child. I could not enjoy all days present in school. The school uniforms and other scholastic materials was only a dream. But this never stopped me from achieving my dream of getting education. I knew education was my only key to success. Despite all the challenges, I made it through the primary school and joined secondary school from where I performed tremendously well towards achieving my government sponsorship to taking a course in Technology from one of the kenyan university (maseno)
I always thought of becoming an employer more than becoming an employee. This is because of the level of unemployment in the country and many other countries in Africa.
I therefore thought of coming up with the projects that can help me grow economically, grow my family and my friends through providing platform of work towards solving issues in return claim awards for their own efforts.
With that reasons in mind, I came up with a mini audio-visual firm that worked so well. This firm has already completed one project. Within the audio visual firm, being the technology person, I have led to development of the school management software that has already won two tenders worthy USD 3000.
In Swahili we say Twaweza, meaning "yes we can". Through hard work, focus and objectives, I have led the team through good progress and only the sky is our limit. Failure has never been our fear but success has always been the order of the day. Thanks to our perfect planning and thanks to ZIDISHA INC. Our best financial partner.

My Business

My business. I head a team of young software developers and our work is divided Into two(2).

(a) Development of school management software and other middle leveled softwares.
We have successfully developed an intelligent integrated school management software (SMS) that has won us two clients who have signed a form of acceptance and five more who are being taken through simulation and basic information on how the software automates the school activities.
My team and I also provide the school Local area network (LAN) that distributively makes available the software to all school's departments to post data to single database. This makes the administration easy to generate reports on daily activities.
Our LAN includes the supply of Computers which supports the minimum requirements of our software, The router and modem to connect the software to the Internet for staff to update database from outside the outside the LAN platform, The Network Switch, Thin Clients for Desktop virtualization to reduce power consumption, increase workspace and reduce the cost of purchase of many cpu's. Many thanks to ncomputing technology and zidisha inc. Funding.
(b) we also apply for audio visual supply and installation of music and video equipments.

Loan Proposal

I have recently won a tender to supply the school management software (SMS) to two schools.
The SMS system will run on a single PC but accessed by various departments around the schools. The departments shall include, Administration Block, Accounts Department,The School Library, The Transport Department, Visiting Area, Dormitory Department , The Teaching Staffs and various sections of school for bio-metric attendance recording of data. All the school's Department Posts Data o the common Database for easier monitory by the School's administration and events monitory services.
To achieve the system's distributive nature around the school, i will use the Desktop Virtualization technique so as to reduce The Costs of Purchase of Many computers. The cost of purchase will reduce by 55%. The Desktop Virtualization Technique shall also reduce the power consumption by computers. This is due to using only one CPU to serve many desktops by use of desktop virtualization. To do so i shall make use of the Thin Client tools.
Having discussed on the technical requirements, the schools have given me a tender of supplying and putting in place the Local Area Network that shall be used to run the SMS system. The System shall work both online and offline. With online working, this shall give the extended functionality to supporting Teleworking. Teleworking shall enable the staff to update the database from home through internet connectivity. The internet connection will also allow the school to send emails and messages to the parents ,staff and stakeholders by use of mailing service and strings.
Therefore, the following is a list of items i have been tendered to supply and create the School's LAN thereafter before installing the School Management Software.
