Adventure Alternative Kenya leaderGilbert Njeru
Gilbert Njeru is a trip leader for Adventure Alternative Kenya and the current Chairperson of Moving Mountains in Kenya.
He lives in Embu at our guesthouse and manages the Adventure Alternative and Moving Mountains programmes there, plus all the volunteers and medical elective students who come to this part of Kenya. He is also active during the school and university trips, often helping to guide on Mount Kenya (over 40 successful summits of Point Lenana to his name). Despite the numerous ascents on Mount Kenya it wasn't until 2015 that he got the opportunity to climb Mt Kenya's bigger brother, Kilimanjaro... which he successfully summited with an Adventure Alternative team.
Gilbert is the self-proclaimed 'King of Embu' and an enthusiastic member of staff with a great sense of humour and infectious personality. He never fails to leave a big impression on everyone he meets and even before getting involved with Moving Mountains had dedicated his life to making positive changes in the lives of all the street children in Embu and now all the children, communities and projects supported and developed by Moving Mountains across East Africa.
