volunteers will get involved in getting to work /do activities with masai people.Also getting to know how they earn for their living .

Sadly, many Maasai are left with few economic opportunities and are forced to migrate to urban areas for survival, leaving their communities with less human resources and infusing the Maasai culture with other traditions and ideas, which alters the original culture.  As a volunteer in the Cultural Conservation Project in the Maasai region of Kenya, you can immerse yourself into Maasai daily life and collaborate with Maasai people by sharing ideas and promoting projects to preserve and increase appreciation of the Maasai culture. Local traditions are unique and locals are more than happy to show visitors everything about their customs. Global Crossroad invites you to help document Maasai culture and traditions so that their culture is preserved and can be understood by many. In addition, you can share your own culture in return.  This is a great way to experience all Kenya has to offer, truly understand a foreign culture and enrich community values and quality of life.
Volunteers are invited to come through out the year because there is no closure to cultural concervation.They will spend most of time with families here.You dont need to have any background experience.
