I Am the Hummingbird

Wangari Maathai was a great champion of human rights and environmental conservation. She founded the Green Belt Movement, which helped replant tens of millions of trees in Kenya, and started the Institute for Peace and Environmental Studies at the University of Nairobi. In 2004, she became the first African woman to win the Nobel Peace Prize. She passed away in September 2011 at the age of 71.

In remembrance of this inspiring woman and her many accomplishments, we have posted a short video clip of Wangari Maathai delivering a simple, yet powerful message.  We hope you enjoy, take it to heart, and remember to “be the hummingbird.”
