Mbarouk Travels from Pemba to Canada

by Community Forests International on November 1, 2010

After a few unsuccessful attempts, we've finally managed to get our Pemban Director, Mbarouk Mussa Omar over to Canada. Mbarouk arrived on the 18th of October, and spent a week touring CFI's projects. Mbarouk was very happy to finally see what CFI's doing on this side of the globe, including our latest efforts at Whaelghinbran Farms. Mbarouk got to talk to some students from Marshview Middle School (see post below), and helped our interns Brennan and Lisa prepare for their upcoming stint in Tanzania.

Mbarouk is presently attending a course in Community-based Natural Resource Management at the Coady Institute in Antigonish. Keen to improve his skills as Community Forests Pemba's Executive Director, Mbarouk will return to Pemba after his course in order to continue the community-led tree planting movement he helped initiate.
