Due to the remoteness of the land, there aren't many clinics and medical professionals in and around where Masai tribes live. This leaves them at a great danger since any infection can become life threatening and even minor illness can turn into serious disease. With good health brings prosperity, this is especially so in Masai people's case as their work is physically demanding and they need to be in very good physical condition. Because of this, dedicated medical volunteers are urgently required in the region.

Project Location

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.
