Summary

We have been running education and community projects in Jambiani, Zanzibar since 2008, using other people's facilities. The dream of our own educational facility became a reality at the end of 2016 with the completion of the Jambiani Educational Center build. Due to your support, we were recently able to add toilet facilities, water structures and waterproofed the center. Now, we are looking to bring education to a whole new level, adding computer classes to increase employment opportunities.

Challenge

After running Education Programs at Jambiani Educational Center since 2016, we have seen such a significant increase in knowledge and skills. Students are able to take away what they learn and turn it into employment opportunities. However, even with improved English, reading and writing, not everyone is able to gain employment. Why? They are lacking a main skill employers look for: computer skills.

Solution

With a growing tourism sector in Zanzibar, computer skills have become an asset for new employees. In return, we wish to build a Computer Center to will join Jambiani Center in order to increase the impact. The computer center will provide the skill that students are lacking, but employers are looking for. Computer classes will be held for the students to increase the computer literacy, but also practice and develop their English language skills.

Long-Term Impact

The centre is a Community Centre created in partnership with the local Community of Jambiani. It was established and will continue to work/develop with the explicit agreement that it is a space for the local Community and as a base for our free Community English classes, it also hosts daily meetings of a local Women's Group. The extension of the computer center will provide the students an opportunity to access learning material that would not be available otherwise and gain further employment.
