Clean water

The streams, upon which the people depend, dry up in the dry seasons and the women and children have to walk long distances and dig down to find water.

Food security

In 2009 the NCAA imposed a ban on the small scale agriculture practiced by the Maasai and a 50% reduction in the number of their cattle.

Health Care

Fourteen out of every hundred children die before they reach the age of 5, mostly from easily preventable and treatable water-borne diseases.

Education

The Maasai people are embracing education knowing that it is essential for them if they are to be able to adapt to the changes going on around them.

Micro Loans

In 2012 we started a microfinance loan system, with business training, to enable people to manage their own businesses.

Supporting Maasai communities of the Ngorongoro Conservation Area, Tanzania with their sustainable pathways out of poverty, which promote wellbeing and dignity for all.

We support these determined and resilient people with their work finding solutions to the issues which are causing widespread hunger and ill health. Projects include different methods of accessing clean water, year round food availability, education, improved health care facilities, health education and business opportunities through training and loans.

The Community Health Education Programme is giving information which is opening people’s minds to ways of improving their well being. Since the classes started pregnancy clinic attendance and immunisation uptake have increased dramatically. The classes are giving information and encouraging discussion about the harmful practice of FGC (Female Genital Cutting) traditionally performed on all girls at puberty, and to ending child marriage. These practices are now reducing.

All projects are sustainable and managed by the people themselves.

We were registered with the UK Charity Commission in 2008. Our own travel, time and UK administration expenses are paid by ourselves, the UK founders, so 100% of your donations go directly to the community projects.
