We are looking for volunteers for Project KIITEC

 
1) THE PROJECT: KIITEC
Kilimanjaro International Institute for Telecommunications, Electronics and Computers
KIITEC is a new technical institute dedicated to providing accessible, high quality instruction and technical experience to meet the needs of its students. KIITEC was created thanks to FTE (Foundation for Technical Education), a non-profit organization, funded by private donators. This project is realising in partnership with Ingénieurs du Monde, a French non-governmental organization accredited by the United Nations which continues to support actively this Institute. The vision of KIITEC is to become the leading education centre for Telecommunications, Electronics, and Computers within Tanzania and in the East-African region.
KIITEC is an international institute: School staff is made of national and international teachers, in order to provide, on a regular basis, updating of our training programs to the latest evolutions of technology, and facilitate the transfer of such technology. Moreover, we have established collaborations with other schools in the world, Sowela in the USA, Lycée du Grésivaudan in France, and several Institutes in Switzerland.
Why do students choose KIITEC? They want:
A rewarding technical degree to find a well paid position, even to create their own job
Top-quality instruction based on advanced knowledge and hands-on education
A state-of-the-art training benefiting from the latest equipments
An international environment through partnerships with American and European professionals
The construction of the institute is completed now and the first students will finish their training in December 2007.
The general Tanzanian education system is mainly based on learning by memorising but practical experience is lacking.  The vocation of the school is to form real technicians capable to situate the problem and to repair all kind of electronic equipment (domestic and industrial, computers and telecommunication equipment). The international NGO which is called « Ingénieurs du Monde » is in charge of, amongst other things, founding technical experts who are willing to teach in practical workshops on a voluntary basis for a few weeks.
Concretely speaking we are looking for some instructors who speak English and have several years of professional experience.
 Arusha is located below the Kilimanjaro at an altitude of 1 300 m of altitude and offers an enjoyed and very pleasant climate throughout the year. It is also a place for tourism as safaris are organized to the Parcs of Serengeti and Tarangire, the volcano of Ngorongoro and there is also of course the possibility of climbing the Kilimanjaro or Mount Méru.
