Klaus Stoll

Klaus Stoll studied theology in Germany and the UK but is active in the 
Internet sector since about 15 years. Although totally self taught in all 
related to the Internet, Mr. Stoll was put in charge to build up the internet 
network of churches in the UK (ChurchNet.UK, based at St. Martin College, 
Lancaster) as its manager. As a result of this activity he was a founding 
member of the European Christian Internet Conference (ECIC)  and the 
International Christian Internet Conference (ICIC). After some years he got 
involved in the creation of church networks on a global basis through the 
World Council of Churches (WCC, Geneva). His activities where particular 
concentrated in developing countries. 
In 1997 Mr. Stoll left the church sector in order to co-found Fundacion 
Chasquinet in Quito, Ecuador. The main aim of Chasquinet 
(www.chasquinet.org) is to promote the strategic use and development of the 
Internet in the social sectors of developing countries through research, 
education and enhanced communication . Mr Stoll is now the general 
manager of Chasquinet. Typical projects Chasquinet has and is undertaking 
are the creation and co-ordination of the Somos@Telecentros, (www.tele-
centros.org), the regional network of Telecentres in Latin America and the 
Caribbean, whose project manager Mr. Stoll is at the moment, BarrioNet 
(www.barrionet.org) and  Street Children projects 
(www.chasquinet.org/ninosdelacalle) to name some. Chasquinet is fully 
committed to promote the non commercial use of the Internet and very much 
involved in the policy discussions regarding information technologies in LAC 
and worldwide.
It is Chasquinets and Mr Stoll?s personal goal to further develop, in co-
operation with other relevant organizations and individuals,  the policies, 
strategies and tools that are very much needed in order to use the available 
information technologies as a effective means for just development.
