'Tunapanda miti milioni moja - We plant one million trees'. For 2017-2018 this is the big ambition of the young university with the impressive name 'Sebastian Kolowa Memorial University' (SEKOMU), situated in the Lushoto district in North-Eastern Tanzania, in the center of the West-Usambara mountains. This university celebrates its 10th anniversary. Together with my Tanzanian colleague and good friend Professor Didas Kimaro I was invited for a colloquium about greening of uplands on 1st of March, 2018, and for a tree planting session the next day. I have been there before several times for project work, and each time I was impressed by the warm and also deep religious culture. And yes, they do their best to guide this God-forgetting mzungu back on the right track, but without fanatism.
