Zanzicode update – courses running already

After all the new years celebrations and post-ICTD2010 work, here’s some news on our Zanzicode projects.

Since the end of last year the new course with twelve new students is running. They are introduced on the Zanzicode blog with a picture and a statement. My favourite one here by Aboud:

I hope to be able to learn this technology that moves the world to another stage.

Well, let’s hope it moves at least the career possibilities of our students to another stage. Of course we are looking forward to learn about their progress and wish Salum, our teacher the best of luck.

Chembe Ventures

Also our second course in Zanzibar, the Zanzicode Business Incubator which we have initiated together with Chembe Ventures has started with five participants. Martin and Salum are both teaching (and learning by doing) about web entrepreneurship in Zanzibar. After the course ideally the students will have created a business themselves and will be operating it. We’re curious how this will turn out.

If there’s an interested organisation out there which is active in Zanzibar and might achieve their goals better with IT we’d be happy to know more and maybe collaborate. Contact info can be found here.
