Capacity

With an eye on the future challenges host communities are likely to face, we support a robust capacity building program that targets youth, women and leaders with an objective of empowering the Maasai to manage their resources, mainly land and wildlife, for posterity.

Our capacity program works through the following projects:

  • Education sponsorship & scholarships for higher education for girls
  • Koiyaki Guide School
  • Community managed micro-finance for women
  • Exchange visits for elders
  • The voluntourism project

Our achievements include

  • Twenty scholarships valued at US$ 20,000 have been awarded in the guide training school
  • More than 50 girls have been sponsored through primary school
  • Two post graduate scholarships have been awarded to community members
