"You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make" 
Jane Goodall

We are proud to work with: 

Jane Goodall Institute, Roots & Shoots movement 

Dr Jane Goodall began working in Tanzania 60 years ago and revolutionised and stimulated us with her pioneering study of wild chimpanzees and how we think about chimpanzees and ourselves. 

In 1991, Jane Goodall started Roots & Shoots, a global community action program to inspire, empower and encourage young people worldwide to take action to ensure a better future for people, animals and the environment. The Arusha branch of Roots & Shoots is responsible for organising our plastic projects at several schools in the Kilimanjaro area and rekindling the Rau Forest project.
