- To say that our journey just begins………
We have been inspired by great people in history, we share ideas and opinions with national thinkers such as Izdine Abdou Salam in Radio Kartala which is among the reasons others still getting into the journey with the different groups that we are still moving forward with their present and future leaders, Boina Ali, Mounir Issa… in continuous leadership with Baracani, Ranza, Ngodja, Radio Betlem…etc..
Boina Ali Abdallah – Born in Seleani Hamahamet, north-east of Grande Comoros, I am one of the driving forces of Radio Betlem but also many associations inside Seleani Hamahamet.

Inspired by science astronomy, electricity and with the help of my grand examples such as Izdine Abdoussalam and Mohamed Salim Ali, in 2004, I went to the electricity for electrical installations and other buildings in the guide my teacher Mr. Oubacar Cheha, reputable electrician Seleani Hamahamet. Among other things during that period (2003 – 2005), I focused in monitoring the airing running of Radio Betlem activities which was re-created in 2004, the Mojahedin-EL SHABAB association for religious ceremonies in which I played the role of editor of singing (choral) but I was also the flutist of the association.

Leena Caroline Stanislaus – Born in the Garden city of India-Bangalore I did my schooling at the well-known St.Charles High School. We had a lovely school library and it was there that I was introduced to the world of reading
After my high school I went on to do my Pre-university at St. Anne’s College .and my Graduation and post graduation (Master in English)at the prestigious Madras University. My Bachelors in Education was achieved at the well-known Indira Gandhi University-Delhi. Apart from this I did my Certificate of Teaching Methodology at Chennai.
My first teaching experience was with the tiny toddlers at Canossa Convent for a year and a half. From there I went into main stream teaching and spent ten glorious years at the most wanted school of Chennai-St. Michaels Academy. Looking back I feel that was more a home to me than school. I bet every teacher and student feels nostalgic about St. Michaels. Every single day was better spent than the day before .The stay at this school was a terrific learning experience under well guided Principals. A big salute to St. Michaels, as the saying goes all good things have an end I left for greener pastures.
Teaching was and is my passion; I joined Kids Central which focuses a whole lot on all round development of the child as an individual. This school was entirely different from the one I had been to previously .Here I learnt to teach through activity method. Whatever it was that we teach and whatever the age group of the child we had to teach through activity method for the proper understanding of the child. Ms. Valli Subbiah the founder of this school has brought forth a whole lot of self independent kids who love to think for themselves. Each school trip was informative and educative. Every term Ms.Valli would bring in some specialist for a course for teachers to improve and understand better our role as teachers and how to deal with students more effectively.
From here I flew across seas and landed in the State of Kuwait. I am working at Martyr Asrar al Qabandi Bilingual school. Teaching at the international level is great fun. I enjoy working with my kids, I love them and they too reciprocate the same feeling. It was here that I happened to do write ups for Seleani Comoros with none other than the Founder himself. He brought out the writer in me and I have but added to this network in a small way and wish it very god luck for future endeavors.
