Heating up the EFE Symposium in Dar es Salaam

NSCC International's Jim Bate attends on behalf of the EFE Veta-Mikumi project

Greetings from sunny Tanzania. After travelling for 26 hours I am happy to be back in Tanzania for another wonderful opportunity. I am currently enjoying the EFE-Tanzania Symposium being held at the White Sands Resort, just outside of Dar es Salaam. There are about 60 representatives from all 12 Canadian projects making up the Education for Employment program sponsored by the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA) and administered through the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). Christopher Ayo, Ludovic Saronga and I are here representing the VETA – Mikumi project. The first day was a great experience for me and I am learning a great deal about this program and some of the challenges it faces. There are people from industry, government and the education sector all working toward a common goal of getting more of the people in Tanzania trained in vocational and technical areas in order for them to obtain jobs. It is great to see so many people working together to make this program succeed.

Jim Bate, NSCC International
