Introducing our new assistant

This is a post by Fereji N. Fereji, who will be following Hakim as an assistant to Zanzicode’s lecturer Salum in Zanzibar:

As an assistant to Zanzicode school, I will make sure that there is no gap of communication between the Zanzicode school in Zanzibar and the Zanzicode staff in Europe. I will take the responsibility of e-mail exchanging and chatting with everybody involved in the project. The staffs will get feedback of our everyday activities at the right time. On the other hand, we will be able to get advice at any time on how to handle the works in Zanzicode.

Let me introducre myself: I was born in Zanzibar, on 18th of September in 1976 in a poor family. I had been looked after by a woman with whom we didn’t have blood relation. She was unique as she took me as her real child. I finished my primary education in 1993 in Forodhani primary school. In 1996, I finished my ordinary secondary education in Hamamni secondary school. In 2000, I finished advanced secondary education at Lumumba secondary school.

In 2010, I applied for the Zanzicode school of web development where I learned web programming. I was lucky to learn at Zanzicode because I could get the knowledge which I could not afford. Now am proud that I can develop a professional website.

Zanzicode is a unique web programming school in Zanzibar that tries to uplift the web knowledge and web awareness of Zanzibar youths to current standards – something which has enabled me to work very independently in a modern way. A school such as Zanzicode is important because it is specifically dealing with IT and web development, and it covers all that has to be learned.

I have discovered that if the Zanzicode project sustains for years to come, the knowledge of web programming will be common to the Zanzibar youths, and as a result, their living standard will become higher.

Best,
Fereji N. Fereji.
