Abstract [en]

This collection of papers was compiled by a number of friends of Barbro Johansson, a well-known Swedish missionary of her generation, who wanted to honour her.

Barbro Johansson trained as a teacher in Sweden, and went to Tanzania in 1946. She re-opened and rebuilt the Girls' School at Kashasha, Bukoba, and played an active role in church, community and political affairs. In 1959 sha was elected Member of parliament for Mwanza, and served in that capacity for a number of years. In 1962 she became a Tanzanian citizen. Later, on President Nyerere's request, she became principal of the Girls' Secondary School, Tabora. For three years she was Adviser to the Tanzanian Ambasador to Sweden. She was active in Adult Education and community programmes in Tanzania and served on the Board of the University of Dar es Salaam. She contributed a great deal to the links between Sweden and Tanzania.
