This is notably the other major success story of Jamia Mosque Association.
The thinking behind the establishment of the institution was to
give the Muslim youth an alternative opportunity to acquire technical
training and skills within an Islamic environment. The institution
was handed over to Jamia by WAMY and began operations under Jamia
in June 2005. Since then, it has experienced phenomenal growth.
From an initial student body of 49 students, the institution currently
boasts of over 200 students from its January 2006 intake. The demand
is ever increasing and with the introduction of other courses, soon
the institute will have to relocate too more spacious facilities.
the goals of the institution, is to develop a sound strategy which
will see the upgrading of JTI, improvement of the quality of services
and expansion of the institution; by offering both internationally
recognized courses and localized courses which shall be applicable
to the local set up and equipping the recipients with skills that
will make them useful members of the society.
The aim is to ensure that JTI becomes a major player in offering
reasonable and best quality education to the Muslim youth in particular
and the Kenyan population in general.
In order to enhance the service delivery of the institute, the
Executive has formed the JTI management board.
The board is chaired by Dr. Noor Ali and assisted by Pro Abdul
Aziz. Other members of the board include Bro. Abdul Latif Essajee,
Abdul Bary Hamid and Bro. Mohamed Shariff. The secretary to the
