Effective November 25, 2011, Florencio Ceballos will no longer be a member of the Board of Trustees (BOT) for Telecentre.org Foundation. Florencio, who is currently Senior Program Specialist for the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) in Canada, has been working with telecentre.org in different capacities since 2005, before becoming an official BOT member in 2009.
In his letter informing the Board of the end of his mandate as a member, Florencio expressed the following: “I would like to take
this opportunity to thank very deeply, through you, the entire telecentre.org community, those hundreds of telecentre leaders around the world that since day one opened their doors to us and helped us to better understand what it takes to generate social change, how communities have a key role to play in transforming their own lives and how technology is an irreplaceable enabler in making that happen.”
Miguel Raimilla, Executive Director of Telecentre.org Foundation, said, “On behalf of the Telecentre.org Foundation team, we like to thank Florencio for his invaluable contributions shaping the global telecentre movement. Floro has been a phenomenal leader and promoter of telecentres as social development hubs. He has traveled around the globe, motivating and facilitating collaboration and partnerships among telecentre practitioners, government officials, corporate leaders and many other institutions. Floro, you will be missed as a member of our board, but we have no doubt that we can always count on your ideas and support.
Dear Floro, from all of us, Gracias, Thank you, شكرا, Maraming salamat, Merci, Obrigado, Cпасибо, शुक्रिया, Mulţumesc, Gràcies.”
