Raabia Hawa

Ms Raabia Hawa


Ulinzi Africa Foundation was founded in 2014 by Raabia Hawa, a well known Kenyan media personality turned conservationist. Raabia’s passion for wildlife shone through during what she termed, the ‘dark years. Between 2011- 2015, ivory poaching was rampant in the East African region.

Hosting a show on prime time radio with the Radio Africa Group, Raabia quickly realised that what she was seeing on the field during her off days and weekends, was nowhere in the public domain. It was then that she took it upon herself to raise awareness about not just the plight of elephants, but also that of the rangers, many of whom had been shot in the line of duty. She joined hands with the Star Newspaper, a local publication, and began a new journey as a wildlife reporter, spending more and more time doing what she loved, being in the field working alongside rangers.
