The TBA Kenya alumni group (TBAAK) have just held a successful members meeting on 20th March 2015, at the National Museums of Kenya. Passionate about using collaboration to bring together different voices and views among themselves and their project partners for increased conservation impact, the members came up with ideas for strengthening their network.
“TBAAK members have diverse skills, knowledge and resources, giving it the potential to be a self-confident, creative and effective network of alumni, who can collectively make a huge difference in the conservation field” – Mr. Herman Chege, TBAAK Chairman.
11 alumni were present at this meeting, where discussions on functioning of the network, benefits to membership and opportunities available for their growth prevailed.
The meeting also provided a platform for sharing results of the projects they are implementing in partnership with TBA, which include ‘Conservation of the straw-coloured fruit bats in Mombasa County, Kenya’ and ‘The utilisation of the Kikuyu escarpment forest mushrooms for improved livelihoods’.
Meeting proceedings will be uploaded as soon as they are available.
