IDDI HASSAN ALI
Mr. Hassan-Ali is the director of all operations for ZAVECO. He has worked in the volunteer field since 2009.
In 2017 he created ZAVECO in order to address the environmental destruction ravaging Zanzibar’s mangrove forests.
“The environment is very important for the whole world. I want to protect Zanzibar Island for the future generations in the face of environmental degradation, climate change, and sea level rise. I wish to find solutions for local communities, through education so that communities can look towards themselves to provide solutions without relying on the government. Volunteers can help create these solutions with local communities, building a more sustainaible future.
ASMA AHMADA HAMAD
Mrs. Hamad has bachelors degrees in Biology, Geography and Teaching. She will soon graduate with her masters in Marine Science from the State University of Zanzibar, where she is also an employee.
In the future she hopes to get her PHD in Marine Spatial Ecology.
She seeks to use her extensive education to develop intelligent, efficient solutions to the issues plaguing Zanzibar’s environment.
“I wish to devote my time towards working to find opportunities for the local people in Zanzibar. Many people are depending on marine resources, and that makes them vulnerable to the destruction of the environment. The Marine environment is our greatest resource, yet we have yet to truly explore it.”
FAR-HIYA HUSSEIN MASOUD
Ms. Masoud is currently the secretary of ZAVECO.
She is well versed in volunteering herself, having spent time in Arusha and South Africa working as a teacher for impoverished communities.
I work in volunteerism because I am passionate about the impact it can have on people’s lives. In addition, I wish to expand my mind, to know what problems people face, possibly certain problems that I don’t experience. Or maybe to educate people on how to better themselves or the environment.”
