The Zanzibar Revolutionary Government on 23rd September 1964, just eight months after the January 12, 1964 Zanzibar Revolution, declared education free for all Zanzibaris. This came in the wake of decades of the denial of education to the majority of the people..
The denial was a deliberate strategy of the oppressors to keep low the people and deny them the benefits of education that would have led to the realization of their aspirations and freedom from the yoke of colonialism and oppression.
The Zanzibar Revolutionary Government, recognizing the value and meaning of education embarked on short and long term plans to access quality education to the majority of our people irrespective of their races, religions or gender. We saw the swelling of children school enrolment, field up with explosion of construction and expansion of schools and classrooms.
The course of education development in Zanzibar has been meritorious and today we are proud of the progress so far achieved that has stem the opening of three universities, a number of technical institutes, vocational training centres and numerous growth of nursery, primary and secondary schools.
The launching of the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training Web-site will greatly help to provide useful of information on this development.

Background of the Zanzibar Bureau of Standards
For many years Zanzibar has been recognized as a commercial center in East and even Central Africa. Through decades of her history though many businesses were conducted within the islands including industrial products, Zanzibar did not introduce an authority to deal with standards and standardization of goods and quality assurance. In 1980s the revolutionary government of Zanzibar introduced trade liberalization policy which provided opportunity for private sector to engage in trade as well as manufacturing services. Since then manufacturing subsector has been fluctuating in terms of number of industries and factories as well as volume of production. Imports have been increasing overtime with slow rate of manufacturing for local consumption and export. This phenomenon has caused many substandard and counterfeit goods flooded in Zanzibar market.
That trend has not been very conducive for manufacturing and trade competition in the country. This is one of the hindrances for Zanzibar economic growth as well as contributing to challenges in terms of safety and health problems. The counter actions are well addressed in both Zanzibar Development Vision (ZDV) 2020 and Zanzibar Strategy for Growth and Poverty Reduction (MKUZA II). The Zanzibar Trade Policy (2006) also elaborated the need of standardization and quality assurance. To meet that purpose, the House of Representative enacted the Zanzibar Standard Act No.1 of 2011 to establish Zanzibar Bureau of Standards (ZBS). Towards the end of 2012, the ZBS established and now is in operation.
Zanzibar Bureau of Standard has put forward the following vision and mission statement:
Vision: To be among the global leaders in providing highly respected standardization, quality assurance and metrology services.
Mission: To develop and promote product standards, certification, quality management and conducting highly technical and professional testing of products using state of the art laboratory equipments and devices that will promote and build confidence to manufacturers, traders and consumers while strengthening Zanzibar’s economy and community health and safety.
Role of the Zanzibar Bureau of Standards
One of the key roles of the Bureau is ensuring that the products whether produced in Zanzibar or imported to Zanzibar market comply with the developed Zanzibar standards or other national recognized standards or international standards.
Hence ZBS has to develop, promote and enforce standards in order to ensure health and safety of the consumers as well as protecting environment while promoting favorable manufacturing and trade based on quality of goods and services. In so doing ZBS builds confidence to manufactures and traders for their goods and services in the markets. This in turn supports economic and social development of the country.
Services to be offered by ZBS
ZBS support market access for agricultural, manufactured commodities and services through the following services:-
Setting and publishing Zanzibar Standards
Laboratory testing and calibration
Training and consultation
In order to ensure sustainable improvement of such services, ZBS accords maximum cooperation with national, regional and international organizations in all matters related to standardization and quality assurance.
ZBS After one year
1.0 ZBS being new institution in Zanzibar established in late 2012 started to build foundation through institutional and legal framework where some regulations drafted to support its law during operation; these include:-
The Zanzibar Standard (Certification) Regulation,2013
The Zanzibar Standard (Compulsory Batch Certification of imports) Regulation,2013
The Zanzibar Standard (Tested Products)Regulations,2013
Some more regulations will be drafted soon.
2.0 ZBS developed its five years Strategic Plan which will guide its operation. The Strategic Plan indicates the needs to put in place the building infrastructure for office and laboratories with state of the art equipments. Also the capacity building for the staff so that they can perform their works based on modern techniques and professionalism. The strategic Plan requires about TZS 19.5 billion in the coming five years to implement the planned targets and activities.
3.0 On the other hand, the Bureau has recruited 11 technical staff and acquires 9 supporting staff transferred from other government departments. During the financial year 2013/2014, the Bureau expects to recruit another batch of 15 technical staff.
4.0 ZBS has started to implement training programme to build capacity to her all staff. The training programme has short, medium to long term plans.
5.0 ZBS made major rehabilitation of the building provided by Zanzibar Investment Promotion Authority (ZIPA) at Amani Industrial Park. Some working facilities supplied in the building. It is therefore, ZBS currently located at Amani Industrial Park with its plan to develop its permanent offices and laboratories at Maruhubi area.
6.0 ZBS website developed and updated with related information. This is one of planned communication and information sharing tool kit with stakeholders. Also ZBS Local Area network (LAN) installed and operationalised.
7.0 ZBS has been introduced to various local, national, regional and international organizations. This is very significant in terms of knowledge and experience sharing.
Implementation of ZBS Strategic Plan
ZBS commits to implement her Strategic Plan through prioritizing its targets and activities. Amongst the prioritized activities include:
Construction of office and laboratories
Supply of Office and laboratories state of the art equipments and devices

HISTORY OF ZANZIBAR LIBRARY
The need to establish a public library in Zanzibar was emanated by the Hockey’s Report. Unfortunately the political changes in Zanzibar in early 1960s interrupted the project and in fact it was never implemented. The spirit to start a Central Public Library however has always been there and was revived in 1980s. It was USIS who asked permission to establish a library. The idea was accepted by Zanzibar Government and the Americans dispatched two containers full of books and furniture. Then the Ex-telecom was chosen as a good site for the new library. Unfortunately, the government of USA postponed this program before it took off. The books and furniture were given to Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports. Then the Ministry turned to British Council to get help to establish its own Central Library. In 1988, Zanzibar Public Library, the first public library was established in Zanzibar Town by the Ministry of Education and Vocational Training. The library was first located in the Ex-telecom Building which is now the famous Serena Inn. Later in late 1989 it was shifted to another temporary base in Vuga, near the Zanzibar High Court. Thereafter in December 1994 the first branch library was opened in Chake Chake, in the sister Island of Pemba. From April 2005, five district libraries are established in Zanzibar Island and three district libraries in Pemba.

Through international students studying in Turkey, Turkey’s aim is to raise generations that will produce solutions to problems of their countries as well as our world, have equality of opportunity and a supra-national perspective.
Turkey has opened its doors to many international students for their education both in the pre-Republic and the Republic period, scholarships were provided to those students for them to receive a distinguished education in our country.
While, in 1960s, scholarships were being provided within the framework of bilateral agreements signed with other states; especially with the support of the late President Turgut Özal, policies towards international students were systematized for the first time in 1992 and the “Great Student Project” was initiated.
Since the beginning of the 2000s, major developments exhibited in all areas from Turkey’s foreign policy to culture, social policy to economic development; which also reflected on the international education paradigm of the country and caused important steps to be taken in the said area.
Within the framework of the tasks entrusted to the Presidency for Turks Abroad and Related Communities following its establishment in 2010, “Türkiye Scholarships” program has been implemented with our Presidency’s initiatives and in cooperation with all respective agencies in 2012, as a result, higher education scholarships provided by our country for international students were updated and relaunched under the brand name of Türkiye Scholarships.

With this feature, it differs from other scholarship programs in the world. Apart from university education, it is aimed to provide students with the benefits of social, cultural and academic extra- curricular programs and activities while they are in Turkey.

Close communication with international students is sustained not only during their education but also after their graduation. Students who have completed their higher education in Turkey become voluntarily country ambassadors who build bridges of friendship between Turkey and their countries. Therefore, the Turkey Alumni network has been established in order to protect our ties with our alumni around the world.
