Meet the Coordinator
Co Founder & Programme Coordinator
My name is Linus Lasway. I like nature and conservation, cultural preservation, swimming and traveling. My favorite song is “Earth Song” by Michael Jackson.
I was born and grew up on the foothills of Mount Kilimanjaro. Day by day I was very happy to wake up and see the ice on top of Mount Kilimanjaro. It was an indication of life for me.
I am holding a Postgraduate Diploma in Wildlife Management from College of African Wildlife Management, Mweka and Bachelor of Arts in Tourism and Cultural Heritage from University of Dodoma.
After graduating from university and struggling for employment in the early 2013 I convinced my colleagues Hamis, whom I met at the University, and Daniel, whom I met at High School, to establish an ecotourism project around the Rau Forest Reserve in Moshi town.
So for me protecting Rau Forest is my dream that has come true.
