Greetings to the LPi Community,

I am a FOSS Advocate based in Pakistan and have been leading country level
initiatives on FOSS and Linux promotion. We have carried out extensive
training and local certifications on Ubuntu Linux http://www.ubuntu-pk.org
with over 7000 people educated, 4800 certified and trained from 506
organizations in collaboration with and support by UNDP-APDIP IOSN
International Open Source Network and the Open Source Resource Center OSRC,
Pakistan Software Export Board PSEB Ministry of Information Technology &
Telecom Government of Pakistan. 

We would now like to extend and strengthen industry-wide accepted Linux
skills and capacity in the region (Lahore-Islamabad-Punjab Province) and for
that we need support from LPi that involves LPi Community Proctorship
allocation and Certification Exams in Pakistan similar to the ones extended
in the Philippines. I have tried to contact the LPi community on a number of
occasions but have gotten no reply possibly due to the fact the wrong
channel may have been approached. 

We want to enable a wider LPI Community of Learning and Practice in our
region. I am also forwarding a CC of this message to IOSN incase a working
relationship can forged through IOSN's continued support to us.
