What are you doing to make a difference?



“It’s the little things citizens do that will make a difference. #mylittlething is planting trees”

— Prof. Wangari Maathai


To build momentum, interest and awareness about the Wangari Muta Maathai House, the Foundation will launch a social media campaign dubbed #mylittlething. The goal of the campaign is to bring Wangari Maathai’s voice back into our lives and remind us that indeed “it is the little things citizens do that make a difference”.

Inspired by Wangari Maathai’s own words that “my little thing is planting trees”, the Foundation will invite people of all walks of life to reflect on what their “little thing” is and declare it in a photograph and send it to us. The campaign will be kicked off by Kenyan and global opinion leaders to raise the necessary awareness and interest in the campaign.
