In 2004, we started working in Tanzania specifically in the Kilimanjaro region. Mt. Kilimanjaro is a key biodiversity and environmental spot in Africa, home to different groups of people that all depend on the health of the environment for their survival and most especially the rural farming families on the lower slopes of the mountain.
We later expanded into watersheds at the top the South Pare mountains. The forests at the top of these mountains are important ecological areas and impact the lives of thousands of families. We plan additional expansion in the Pangani River Basin, which flows from Mt. Kilimanjaro to the Indian Ocean.
