Supporting Zanzibar Aug 22, 2010

Contributions from Swiss Youth Hostels have made it possible to implement some worthwhile projects.

The Scuol Youth Hostel emerged victorious from the second edition of the "Award for Marketing and Architecture". And please note: this hostel won no less than three awards, including the top prize worth 10,000 francs. This prize was assigned to "Les Collégiens Akadiens et leurs Amis Africains" (CAAA). By providing experience, know-how, human resources and financial support from the Swiss Youth Hostels, CAAA has already chalked up some major achievements in Zanzibar. The projects listed below were among those completed successfully thanks to the valuable contributions from Swiss Youth Hostels and direct cooperation with the Zanzibar Minister of Education:

  • Groundwater supply for inhabitants of Ndijani
  • Construction of a primary and secondary school
  • Sanitary facilities
  • Completion of the school canteen

CAAA is an association dedicated to education and human development in Africa. Students, teachers and previous graduates of AKAD College decided to set it up in 2006 with the primary aim of sponsoring and supporting educational projects in Africa by building schools and apprentices' workshops.
