Co Founder & Program Coordinator
My name is Linus Lasway. I like wildlife and nature conservation, cultural heritage 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 shining like a star. It was an indication of life for me but currently the ice at the top of mount Kilimanjaro is rapidly decreasing and I am scared of our future, but planting trees is better than complaining about climate change.
After graduating from university 2012, in early 2013 I convinced my colleagues Hamis, whom I met at the University, and Daniel, whom I met at High School, to establish a sustainable eco-cultural tourism project around the Rau Forest Reserve in Moshi town to protect the forest and empower local youth and women.
So for me protecting Rau Forest is my dream that has come true.
