Founder and President of Meru Animal Welfare Organisation in Tanzania

Over the coming months we will be throwing the spotlight on some of our partner group staff and volunteers. Today we would like to present Johnson Lyimo who had this to say:.

"I have an inborn compassion for animals. Since I was young I really respected animals. Nine years ago, I decided to start focusing my attention on animals that are particularly neglected within my community. In my community they are a significant part of our daily life.

This includes dogs, cats, and donkeys, all of which are so often forgotten or abused within our community. The best way that I saw to tackle this problem was to start a volunteer organization in 2010, which I named Meru Animal Welfare Organization (MAWO) and registered to work on Tanzania regions especial in northern Tanzania where they have a lot of donkeys. Since then, MAWO has had a huge impact in our community and in the lives of countless animals.

I strongly believe we at MAWO will achieve our goals of bettering the lives of animals in our community by using the three “C”s: Compassion, Collaboration, and Creativity. Through this work we will teach our children, change the next generation, and make the world a better place for all animals.”
