The project aims at achieving the following general objectives:

*  Promotion of Mt. Kilimanjaro climbing

*  Promote awareness on environmental conservation

*  To uproot non indigenous vegetations and maintain the theme “Trash in ,Trash out “

In addition, the project intends to meet operational objectives which include educating people on:

*  The need to clean their shoes before climbing as without that they can bring seeds of some poisonous plants from other Mountains eg. A person finishes trekking Mt.McKinley comes to trek Mt.Kilimanjaro, if their shoes are not cleaned there is a possibility of disposing seeds of such vegetations.

*  The hand warmers and toe warmers are disposed carelessly hence lead to environment pollution

*  The importance of preserving positive Tanzanian cultural values by regular visitation to the national parks and other historical sites in the country.

This project  seeks support to subsidize the success of the actual preparation and execution of a program for promoting environmental awareness in Tanzania and advocate the need to conserve the environment amongst the societies living surrounding Mount Kilimanjaro. The campaign which is expected to take 6 days targets people who have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro and those who are intending to climb both locals and foreigners..

The campaign will help  people understand the need to take care of the environment so as to combat and alleviate the impact of global warming which is slowly leaving a negative mark on all living things. Moreover, during the campaign, there will be rich educational components that will teach people on dangers and preventive measures of social issues affecting the environment.

Later on, data will be gathered and analyzed whether objectives were met or not. The findings will be documented and forwarded to the ministry of Wildlife as a proactive course of action in environmental conservation among Tanzanians. Furthermore, the media will be used as an essential component in making awareness to all Tanzanians to promote Mt.Kilimanjaro climbing and conserve the environment.
