Philbert is an Umoja graduate, who completed an internship and then worked in several companies in Arusha in IT maintenance and networking. In 2012 Philbert returned to college to gain a certificate in maintenance, networking and applications. As a fully trained IT Technician, Philbert set up his own business. In April 2013, Gerry Mkemangwa, Umoja's much loved IT teacher left to study in Rwanda, and left a job open! Umoja advertised publicly and still the best candidate was our own graduate. Philbert has shown great responsibility and skill in his new position. He also knows all about IT maintenance so is able to fix our IT problems!
"Umoja provides great support for the youth. I was in the street life...but it was my lucky time when I found The Umoja Centre. I passed through many difficulties but now I am breathing. That I can say long live Umoja!"
