Today I am online guest of Morris Manzolo. In the background I can see his house. Manzolo is sitting in the shade of his trees. He explains that he has been a farmer with the Africa Wood Grow foundation for three years now. He remembers how Rose Martha, Stella Kavindu and Daina Ngambi – all of them working for the CBO with Africa Wood Grow – passed by and shared their knowledge. That it would be better to plant trees. Since then Manzolo has been working on the project, planting trees, caring for them and eventually selling the timber.
