TKN volunteer aims to plant a forest while nurturing “mother plants” for Tanzania

At the mouth of a valley, framed against a backdrop of three mountains, the lush nursery paints a breathtaking view. Filled with indigenous plants, trees and stunning gardens, it is here that Roshan Hemani, the Plant Nursery Manager at the Aga Khan University’s Principal Campus in East Africa at Arusha, serves as a dedicated Time and Knowledge Nazarana (TKN) volunteer.

Hemani’s background is rooted in Education. An experienced teacher, she trained and tutored communities in literacy and special needs, and assisted in educating and integrating refugees in rural Canada, particularly in Saskatchewan. A former curriculum developer, she created various tutor-training kits and education resource tools for the Canadian government, including the National Adult Literacy Database. More recently, she volunteered with the Aga Khan Education Services as an Education Administrator in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
