Gareth James

Head of Alsama/tech

Despite the students enthusiasm and commitment, they were lacking practical tools in using tech. My aim is to provide these tools to help the students reach their full potential.

Gareth is an entrepreneur and software engineer with 20 years experience in the tech industry. He is the co-founder and CTO of, a Canadian start-up providing tools for managers and their teams. He has been a mentor for Gaza Sky Geeks for several years. This experience with GSG prompted him to start looking for ways that technical education could help refugee students. It was the perfect fit. Our students needed computer training and Gareth had the commitment to implement the project.  He has learnt Levantine Arabic over the past 4 years and gives lessons to Alsama/tech students in English and Arabic.
