Celebrating The Season of Creation

The life and example of Wangari Maathai

Wangari Muta Maathai was a Kenyan environmental and political activist. In the 1970s, Maathai founded the Green Belt Movement, an environmental non-governmental organization focused on the planting of trees, environmental conservation, and women’s rights.  In 2004, she became the first African woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize for “her contribution to sustainable development, democracy and peace”. Maathai was an elected member of Parliament and served as assistant minister for Environment and Natural Resources in the government of President Mwai Kibaki between January 2003 and November 2005. She passed away in 2011. “It is the little things citizens do that will make a difference. My little thing is planting a tree” Wangari Maathai

The Green Belt movement has planted over 51 million trees in Kenya.

 May her inspiration live on in us.
