Project Details

We educate illiterate pastoralist communities in Kenya to improve their lives. We also target a local very resource poor primary school.

We are a community based organization based in Northern Kenya. We are offering volunteering opportunities with school children, non-school going children, as well as morans and others. The foundation has various programmes consisting of an “Informal Education/Advisory Programme”, a “School Programme”, a “Business Programme” and a “Community Building Projects Programme”. The first involves health, life skills, literacy etc. advise, whereas the second is based at New Dawn Primary School which has a huge lack of teachers, classrooms and resources. It also addresses issues like parents’ ignorance and tries to bring those who are in the bush looking after goats back to school. We work in a culture-preserving sustainable way.
This is one of the few volunteering opportunities based in Northern Kenya where cultural beliefs and practices are still very much alive, within pastoral communities (Rendille), and you will get to live within, experience and see people wearing a lot of beadwork and manyattas all around the clock. On top, the project is located just around a Game Reserve with lots of animals like lions, elephants, antelopes etc.

The main focus of the project is on

Social Impact

Firstly, the projects foster education in all regards and aspects. Negative attitudes towards education in the community will start to shift and more children will be taken to school. Education is very important to achieve sustainable solutions to face the challenges of a developing country as well as provide a chance for the individual to escape poverty as well as self-development, exposure, broadening of one's horizon.
Entertainment and sporting events will discourage from illegal activities
