Take Back Our Mountains

Personal message

At Take Back Our Mountains, we know that sometimes all it takes to change the world is a little support. Since our inception in 2018 by Taahir Osman and a few community members, we have been determined to make an impact.

The #TBOM movement came about as a counter to the escalating spate of attacks on the Cape mountains. The vision for this initiative is that the #TBOM movement act as a network for hikers, hiking clubs, cyclists, runners, and tourists both local and international; and to, in union appreciates and enjoy the spectacular natural beauty of the Cape has to offer. TBOM focuses on protecting our biodiversity on table mountain national parks, including safe community hikes, cleaning the environment, and community charity.

We have expanded our movement to include environmental clean-ups, educational outings, and scholar outreaches as well as Social and Community Development.

Donations would be appreciated and utilized for the following:

  1. Cleaning & building material.
  2. Radio communication.
  3. Food parcels.
  4. Transport.
  5. Various other initiatives.

Additional funding allows for #TBOM's growth in the following aspects:

  1. Hosting more safe hikes and patrols, providing more eyes in the mountains
  2. Mountain clean-ups can be done on a larger scale including environmental education for the youth.
  3. Path maintenance.
  4. Feeding programs underprivileged communities.
  5. Hosting educational outreach programs.

        Thank you for your support.
