Cleanliness Awareness Campaign at Kilimanjaro National Park
Tanzania National Parks organized Cleanliness Awareness Program at Mount Kilimanjaro from 25th May, 2012 to 04th June, 2012. The purpose of the campaign was to involve local people living around the Mt. Kilimanjaro in cleaning the mountain before the coming of the new tourism season in June.
Moreover, the campaign was meant to offer conservation education to the local people especially on how to improve the mountain cleanliness system of Trash In Trash Out “TITO” so as to have more success on it.
The campaign involved cleanliness on all six routes which includes Marangu; Machame; Umbwe; Rongai; Mweka and Londorosi. Local people were the ones who participated fully in the campaign and they offered maximum support for that and pledged to continue doing so as this will now be the annual event.
