Collaborative Learning to build a Learning Community

Within the Khoja Shia Ithna Asheri Community of East Africa there has been a vision of giving the top priority to education. The need has been fulfilled through the establishment of great educational institutions in the region. Jaffery Academy in Arusha, Nairobi & Jaffery Academy and Jaffery Institute of Professional Studies Mombasa and Al Muntazir Schools & A3 Institute of Professional Studies in Dar e Salam are living examples.

cola1There has been formal and informal exchange of ideas and visits amongst these institutions in the past.  However a conscious attempt has been made recently between the two well established schools i.e. Al Muntazir Schools Dar e Salam and Jaffery Academy Mombasa.  It all started with the request by Al Muntazir’s Management for facilitating a 3 day training program for the Primary teachers on Cambridge International Diploma for Teachers and Trainers in November 2013.

The Future Labour Market - A Paper discussing the future of the Labour Market for reflection and strategic planning.

Not so long ago, when most people stayed in the same line of work for a lifetime, “career” was another word for “job.” In today's changing world, it's more accurate and helpful to think of your career as the sum total of all your work, learning and life roles. Planning your career has evolved into an ongoing work in progress and an important skill to have.

As the world enters the year 2014 facing a stark reality: one in three workers in the labour force will currently either be unemployed or poor. It is important to anticipate and react to future changes in the environment in advance for the effectiveness and sustainability of our community and economy.

The Khoja Shia Ithna-Asheri Jamaat of Arusha completed the Jamaat member’s Census; the exercise started in Muharram 1434 A.H. and was completed in the month of Shab’an 1434 A.H. The exercise took eight months to conclude.

The Census exercise is an important source of information and provides useful data for the Jamaat in its planning, for example housing, education, medical insurance etc.

We commend the Arusha Jamaat for taking the initiative in response to the call we made since 2011, to all the Jamaats to undertake census of their membership (Jamaat).

Below are the results of Arusha Jamaat which highlights also the age and gender profiles of the Jamaat.
