“Hissein Idriss has been a valuable asset to our program as he has taken active part in our communications strategy, reaching out to various communities and helping us develop new partnerships. He has also been very active in our Leadership Workshop series for immigrants and refugees delivering interesting content to students and creating a promotional video to promote the program.”

“Hissein has been a valued website and social media volunteer with the Cook Street Village Activity Centre. With guidance from Centre staff, Hissein was able to upgrade our website quickly and efficiently. Hissein has a great desire to give back to his community by using his technology skills. He is a thoughtful individual who has been a pleasure to work with on our website. I know he would be an excellent fit for any organization in which he chooses to participate.”
Carol Turnbull
Executive Director

“I have read a very interesting article in the Times-Colonist newspaper that featured Hissein and discussed the voluntary work that he was doing for local non-profit associations. Out of his own personal time, Hissein used his expertise, first to set up a blog on our website, and then to give us the guidance we needed so that we could confidently update our own website”

“The Technology For Change Foundation uses their platform as an established tech outfit to enabling grassroots non-profit organizations to deepen their impact. They are inclusive by nature and the output of their work both in our organization and across to the city speaks to scale and scope of impact they are having.”

” Involving Tech 4 Change in leading the tech support at the event was an easy and supportive process. The ability to fully rely on a volunteer who was knowledgeable in providing this service was extremely helpful. The volunteer was flexible, performed all the requested duties and rehearsals and worked well with the event speakers and other volunteers. ”

Hissein Idriss is one of the most positive persons you can have in an organisation. He reminds me of Richard Branson’s “If somebody offers you an amazing opportunity but you are not sure you can do it, say yes – then learn how to do it later!”. He is a person who gives out positive energy into a team, a huge team player and always encourages his colleagues to go the extra mile. It helps that he is also an IT expert, always going beyond the call of duty in his work, to help solve complex IT solutions and not shy to learn at the same time.”
Fazil Irwan
Chief Executive Officer

“Idris jumped on board our project with enthusiasm and dedication. He is a quick, out-of-the-box thinker who embraces technical challenges with drive and perseverance. Whether he knew the answer or not, Idris was quick to dive into the research so that he understood everything about what he was working on.”

“It was a pleasure working with Hissien. His collaborative nature combined with his passion and drive really helps set a teams vision into fruition. His ability to adapt when faced with new challenges reveals his dynamic range of talents. Would love the opportunity to work with Hissien again in the future.”

Hissein Idriss is a great person to work with. He has a great outlook on life, is always happy and a positive influence on the team. He is very much a team player and encourages his teammates to excel. He has a high-level of IT and Software Development knowledge and experience but is always willing to learn new technologies quickly. He has a “can do” attitude and is able to resolve complex issues with confidence.”
