Zanzicode provides free education in the field of Web Development to a small number of talented and motivated students of poor background in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Zanzicode is a project of the Austria based NGO ICT4D.at.
Our goal is to help build the personal careers of our graduates as well as to kickstart a local web development community. Our work so far has proven that there is both talent and demand for professional web work in Zanzibar. This is true especially now, as the digital gap between Africa and the rest of the world is closed a bit further by East-Africa’s recent connection to the Seacom broadband internet cable. Graduates of the Zanzicode class are meant to act as multiplicators in this emerging market, and will help to strengthen the flow of information and enable the interaction between Zanzibar and the rest of the world through the web.
