Gumbo Majubwa: Founder and Director.

When I was 24 years old the forest of my happy childhood in Bagamoyo District, on the East coast of Tanzania started to be degraded. Every time, I see trees being cut, anger haunts me so much, I could cry. Between 2005 and 2008 I studied environmental planning and management at the Institute of Rural Development Planning Dodoma Tanzania. I work at the Tanzania Coastal Management Partnership – Pwani Project. Then for the short period of time work at Prawnto organization, Wildlife Conservation Society Tanzania in research work, and volunteer with Saving Africas Nature – Sana.

In 2017 I join kanthari International Institute for Social Change in Kerala India to study Leadership for Social Change course. Now I am working on the realization of an eco-friendly community surrounded by an agro-forest which will be a source of livelihood and a start to revive our valuable forest land.
