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.
