Location: Rombo, Kilimanjaro
The mountain is important, not only to the tourists who visit and the farmers who live on the slopes, but to many downstream users. Runoff from Kilimanjaro supplies the Pangani River, which flows over 200 miles to empty into the Indian Ocean. Water from the Pangani is an important and widely competed-for commodity in this rain-poor region. Usage of the river water by smallholders, large scale farmers, high-usage rice farmers, and domestic users along its length decreases river flow.
Mount Kilimanjaro Recovery Club (MOKIREC) contributes to reforestation efforts on Mt. Kilimanjaro, because of its vital importance to the ecology of the surrounding region. Natural trees are being planted by people around their farms and homes for ecosystem protection and livelihood improvement. Food, medicine and lumber producing species are protecting families from spending money on these domestic products. Mount Kilimanjaro Recovery Club (MOKIREC)is a voluntary organization for Conservation of natural resources around mount Kilimanjaro
