Dear Mr. Hoeg
I support the Kisimiri Primary, Secondary and High School in various
matters. The schools are public and situated in Arumeru District at the
foot of Mount Meru/Tanzania.
Very recently a solar powered computer room has been installed at the
school. The computers run with Ubuntu (English, Hardy Heron version/ no
internet at the moment). Unfortunately the Secondary and High School
lack teachers to educate all the students (1200) and teachers in IT.
Therefore I wanted to inquire if you have any contacts in Tanzania,
which could help me to find a suitable person willing to spent
4-8 weeks teaching in Kisimiri.
Primary duties would be to give computer courses, explain the various
basic programmes of Ubuntu and to install all the downloadable open
swahili features that were developed by the Open Kiswahili Localization
Project team (Department of Computer Science University of Dar es
Salaam). Travel expenses, housing, food will be provided and a monthly
The headmaster of the Kisimiri Secondary and High School, Mr. Emmanuel
Kisongo John, will gladly discuss the matter with you.
