The last couple of weeks at Daraja have seen a team of editors and journalists hard at work preparing for the first issue of the Kwanza Jamii newspaper. We're doing all the design work ourselves, and so we enlisted the help of Edward Takesh from New Horizons Computer Learning Centre in Dar es Salaam to do some in-house training for the relevant staff up here in Njombe. The transformation has been remarkable, and more importantly, the end product is coming together and looking great.
Our thanks go to Edward and New Horizons for doing such a great job. The lucky staff who got to participate (I'm jealous) had nothing but praise for Edward's ability both as a user and as a trainer of the various software packages we're using, as well as for his attitude and helpfulness.
So if anyone's looking for training on Adobe Creative Suite software in Tanzania, these guys are highly recommended. And they do a whole lot more besides.
Daraja is a recently-formed organisation, working in rural Tanzania, aiming to make local government more responsive to the communities they serve. We believe in bringing government closer to the people, and are committed to making democratic local government work for the poor.
