    Hello Friends!
    Welcome! Stay with us for awhile and help us by contributing your knowledge and skills to our organization in Moshi-Tanzania. The college here is based in foreign languages, computer skills, tourism and other activities. We are teaching other courses, such as hospitality management, wildlife management, accounting and journalism. There are many course projects which you will be interested.
    We currently have six people working with us, Goodluck, the head of the college (and teacher), Samson Misana ( Volunteer Organizer), Lucy ( Matron) Godlisten (teacher) and Irine (teacher). All of our team members work as teachers in our organization to make sure our students attain their goals. The teachers support youth to build their careers in the local and global tourism industry.
    We also have a class for students who come to learn computer skills for basic use, computer maintenance, information technology and programs like Microsoft Office, Website design, Adobe, Editing and many other programs. Our classes are small and relaxed. Sessions start at 8:00am up to 3:30pm, from Monday to Friday.

    We all agree that technology and higher learning have great opportunities for younger generations all over the world.
