Mount Kenya – Africa’s 2nd…

Mount Kenya – Africa’s 2nd highest peak – produces some 70% of Kenya’s fresh water, and is the primary source of water for 7 million people, countless acres of agricultural land, and millions of animals in this East African nation. But…the water tower is changing. Its glaciers are receding drastically, and increasing demands on its runoff are stressing this already-challenged watershed.
In July, 2012, Challenge21 traveled to Kenya to climb the mountain and understand its past…and future. Here’s the trailer from our film, “The Water Tower”, which tells the story of Mount Kenya. Shot and produced by Pete McBride (@pedromcbride) [with a little help from me], it’s a great film – enjoy! And, thanks to our teammates and friends @kimhavell, @julieshull, @francothepapa, Dudu Douglas-Hamilton, and more for helping make it all happen!
