I was born and grew up in Arusha region in northern Tanzania. A region which is surrounded by some of Africa’s most famous landscapes and national parks teeming with diverse species of wild animals . It is home of the world famous Ngorongoro Crater, Mt Meru, Olduvai Gorge pre-historic site and also close to Tarangire, Mount Kilimanjaro and Serengeti national parks among others. Just like many other places around the world animals in this region are facing serious challenges, wildlife animals are poached and hunted for their body parts, Dogs and Cats are abandoned, abused and neglected, Donkeys are mistreated by being overloaded with things like charcoal bags, logs, firewood and bricks. Farmers poison elephants to protects their crops while herdsmen kill or poison carnivores such as lions in retaliation or to protect their livestock.
I LOVE animals ,they are part of me, I can't sit and watch them suffering, this is why I have dedicated all my life to help and support animals in Tanzania. I am so proud for the decision that I have made.
In 2019, I met Sachiko Hirata an animal advocate from Japan, we discussed many issues that are facing animals in Asia and Africa and how can we find a common solution to help the situation. African elephants, rhinos and pangolins are poached to the extinction due the high demand of their body parts in Asia, we decided to join forces and work together in raising the much needed awareness to our people to help these species to survive.
This is how we created KAT (EAAW) organization a non profit organization with a mission to enhance peaceful coexistence between humans and animals . Our activities are based in Tanzania for now but we are planning to expand it to Asia and other places around the world. Please join and support us.

I grew up in Tokyo, Japan. Since when I was a child, I had been allergic to all kinds of animal hair and feathers.
However,I loved animals so much and I played with chickens and rabbits of the kindergarten every day in their houses.
I took a class role of an animals caretaker during six years at elementary school and I even went to school on weekends to take care of animals there. When I was a junior high school student, I had dairy farming experience, then I went on to a professional training school to learned about biology, habits and breeding methods of animals.
After graduation, I could choose any job opportunities at aquariums or zoos,
however, I felt uncomfortable to work for these places knowing the harsh reality that animals faced in captivity,
so I gave up working for animals and chose to work at an office instead.
"I have another way to go" I couldn't push aside the vague idea within and the company after 14 years. In 2018, I took a safari tour to make my childhood dream "meet wild animals in Africa" come true. I visited Kenya and Tanzania then. Looking at wild animals standing on the ground, where was way too expansive to capture in my eyesight, I was instantly stricken by their overwhelming beauty, strength and the silent vibration woven by their living pulsation.
While I visited Tanzania a few more time after that, I was very shocked to know that the circumstances around every animals there, including wild and domestic ones, were too harsh to imagine. Moreover, I came to know the serious problem that people living there don't even know the fact. I met Abbas Mvungi in 2019 and established KAT (former EAAW) believing that we can do things together making use of our experience and uniqueness; Abbas, who was born and brought up in Tanzania and I, was in Japan.
Even at this very moment, animals all over the world are killed by human beings for fun.
I love animals and nature. I love Tanzania and Japan.
As my own activities to support animals, I would like to convey to the people of Japan the current situation surrounding Tanzania's animals, and to convey to the people of Tanzania the wonders of their country from the perspective of Japan and the world, and I tell people everything I learn from animals.
My activities are based on both in Tanzania and Japan.
