  • Description


    Hello everyone,
    My name is Juma I am a 29 years old from beautiful Zanzibar Island and I am native. I decide to operate an institution located in Zanzibar. Establishment of the institution coming through the scarcity of having enough Institute that provide training base on science and technology together with development strategies, employment and education.
    It was established on December 2017 and registered under Ministry of Justice and Constitutional Affairs - Zanzibar we run all programs in Zanzibar and our head quarter located at Kwarara miles 5 from Zanzibar Town. This is the helpful institute for students and overages people in general.

    Our vision
    We promise to become the most valuable institute of training with efficiency and effectiveness for the whole country.

    To ensure we have better community of educated and developed children, youth and the nation as well.

    Our mission
    To ensure we provide the better training through theoretical and practical in different courses that are provided in the Institute

    I founded this institution to support local projects with volunteers and interns from across the world. Volunteers will stay at our family house, so it's always busy through our activities! Staying with us will give you an inside in Zanzibar culture as well as running a hostel and an organization.

    If you have any other experiences or skills that you want to involve while working with us please contact us any time!
