Immersion in fascinating nomadic tribal culture of Masai and live in their traditional homes while enjoying their food.
Masai cultural conservation project is multifaceted. You will education the Masai kids, teach them English and entrepreneurial skills, as well as formula programs to attract tourists and build infrastructures for the development of Masai tribe. The tribe has faced hunger, disease and migration of youths to urban areas because of failed rain, not enough cattle to survive on and no other skills to rely on. But their culture is a big draw to tourists arriving in Kenya, and some of their products are exported worldwide. Through programs, dedicated volunteers like you will give them skills, education, confidence and infrastructures to succeed in future and will make the Masai succeed in keeping their lifestyle.
You do not need any qualifications to volunteer in the project. If you are a good organizer, you’ll do well to support the different ongoing programs. If you are fresh out of school or university, you can learn as well as contribute greatly.
Maasai Cultural Conservation project aims to conserve the main features of Maasai culture by running different kind of programs
Kindly remind there are no fixed work responsibilities in this project so we expect flexibility.
The territories the Masai have shrunk drastically recently because of creation of national parks and human settlements. In Kenya, the Masai used to roam in all of the Great Rift Valley. Today, they are mainly restricted to Kajiado and Narok districts. The lands are mainly semi-arid and arid. Our project is located in Kimuka, about 50 miles from Nairobi. It is a sleepy Masai village.
