Kwea MileleÂ is a group of friends who met online whilst they shared the same passion â hiking! They have scaled almost all the peak points in Kenya, from Ngong hills to conquering Mt. Kilimanjaro. Last month while on a hike to Mt. Kenya they passed through the Mt. Kenya forest whose cover was destroyed by fire, and being people who also take care of nature decided to do something. Here they go!
What is the name of your project:Â Kwea Miti Initiative
Why did you choose the project:We are a nature-loving group. Most of our excursions are in heavily forested places and therefore we strongly felt the need to give back and make Mount Kenya greener notably after the fire destroyed forest cover worth. In addition, OurÂ groupÂ is known as Kwea (means hike) and since we are on a tree planting mission, the name Kwea Miti Initiative fit in perfectly.
How many people are in your team:Â We have five people who will be working together to fundraise, co-ordinate activities and bring the whole project to completion. But as a whole we shall be working with everyone who is willing to contribute their time, skills and money to the project.
How do you plan to Make It Work:Â Making the project known to everyone and anyone. This project in not only about us, as Kwea Milele group, but about all the nature lovers out there. We are giving people an opportunity to give back to nature in a big way. So we plan on spreading the word for people to help us fundraise.
