Tucked away in the far reaches of Tanzania is Mount Kilimanjaro. Nearby is located the College of African Wildlife Management (MWEKA). MWEKA is the most prestigious college for animal studies in Africa.

Mount Kilimanjaro

Recently, SharingAloha was excited to join with three other Maui organizations to bring a recent graduate of its programs, Emmanuel Mbasha, to our island. Mr. Mbasha lives in the village of Machame, Tanzania not far from Kilimanjaro itself.

Mr. Mbasha will be visiting Maui for three weeks beginning April 23. He will be speaking at local schools, and the college here (University of Hawai, Maui) on sustainability issues.

Often people assume sustainability does NOT include animals, but in Africa, it does. Further, in its management of African animals, MWEKA handles the environment – in short, no food no animals. We look forward to working with Mr. Mbasha, and exchanging ideas about sustainability, which help Tanzania, and can help Maui.

If you’d like more information about where and when Mr. Mbasha will be speaking, send an email to info@sharingalohamaui.org, and we’ll notify you of his calendar as soon as it is set!

MWEKA Africa’s most prestigious college for animal studies.
