....Ever Since I was a kid, I loved Wild Animals so much. I wondered where they came from because of how beautiful they are esp the Elephants,Zebras and any other Wild animal you know. I grew up with them, going to school and meeting them on the way was my best moments. Giraffes,Zebras and Elephants were the animals I used to meet on my way to school also some twittering birds like Common BulBul, Red cheeked Cordon blou and the Superb sterling. I used to get late to school because of staring at these beautiful animals which consumed my time. Apart from Wild Animals, I liked debating alot both in Primary and secondary school. I didn't know Wildlife has a career, I only knew when I grow up, I would like to be a "Pilot" "Lawyer" "Doctor" "Newrosergeon" etc so I really wanted to be a lawyer because I liked debating so much so I wanted to go and argue with lawyers and attorneys in court rooms but I didn't score well after high-school so being a lawyer was shuttered there. After few months after high-school, I met a Tour Guide/Naturalist from a well known tour company who took me step by step on Matters wildlife Conservation. He Further advised me to pursue either Tourism or Wildlife Course in order for me to join the conservation world and since I love Wild animals very much, I did exactly as he advised me though raising college fees was the Elephant in the room bearing in mind that I come from a sorry background. I got a sponsorship from an organisation "Compassion International" which helped me finish College.


I got an opportunity to do my attachment at Kenya Wildlife Service - Aberdare National Park then Volunteer at Soysambu Conservancy followed by being a volunteer at Mount Kenya Trust then recently at Naserian Maasai Community Conservancy. Since I finished college in 2019 till date, I have never earned any salary nor get a job out of wildlife because there are very limited opportunities in Kenya for Wildlife, nepotism and high level of corruption also included.


They say failing to plan is planning to fail. Dear Friend I'm not planning to give up on my career. This year [2024] I'm planning to get employment and enjoy the fruits of my labour as other wildlife conservationists. How to get there is what that matters. Success is a process. First, I'm planning to move and start life on my own, Join other Conservationists/Tour Guides and do what they normally do i. e bird watching, travelling with international guests during safari and give talks on Natural history of Flora & Fauna whilst doing wildlife photography. I'm a licensed Tour/DriverGuide/Naturalist by Ministry of Tourism & Wildlife. To achieve all these, I need your financial support because currently I have no coin in my account. The same way we did for wild animals last year till we won is the same way I'm praying that you'll come together and support me this year till we win together. All the same I'm doing it for the Wild animals. I'm one of your own,a buddy from Africa who loves his friends and take them as family. Any amount of donation will be hugely appreciated. We grow up by uplifting others....
