Faculty Application Deadline: October 19, 2018
ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION are a major focus of the Nova Scotia Community College. As part of this work we are presenting the second year of this exciting program opportunity!
Happiness Selema lives in Arusha, Tanzania. She is a full-time teacher and is trying to run a small baking business on the side. Happiness is just one of many women in Tanzania who have turned to entrepreneurship ventures to help support their families and communities. The Happiness Project: Entrepreneurship in Tanzania will provide an opportunity for students to travel to Tanzania in East Africa to participate in a program at partner institution Veta Hotel and Tourism Training Institute (VHTTI). Students will work with students from VHTTI helping develop a project focused on mentoring and aiding local female entrepreneurs through business plan, marketing, and leadership development as they prepare to start small businesses; in turn advancing the economic, social, and environmental health of the area.
This application is for a ‘junior’ employee lead who will work collaboratively with the ‘senior’ lead and the students in all the pre-departure phases of the program but will not travel to Tanzania in 2019. Upon program approval for May 2020, the ‘junior’ employee lead will become the ‘senior’ lead and participate in the travel component of the program.
About Arusha, Tanzania and the VETA Hotel and Tourism Training Institute
NSCC began working with VHTTI in 2015 on a Government of Canada funded project developing a tour operations program at the Diploma level. The institute is located in Njiro – Arusha, about 15 kilometres from the heart of Arusha city. VHTTI was strategically established and located in Arusha to curb the rising need of expertise in hospitality and tourism industry. Arusha was chosen as a strategic location due to the fact that among other reasons the city is at the heart of the Tanzania’s Northern tourism circuit.
Located below Mount Meru on the eastern edge of the eastern branch of the Great Rift Valley, Arusha has a temperate climate. The city is close to the Serengeti National Park, the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Lake Manyara National Park, Olduvai Gorge, Tarangire National Park, Mount Kilimanjaro, and Arusha National Park on Mount Meru.
