Since the 1970s the Government has been moving Maasai families from their traditional grazing lands to accommodate tourism infrastructure. Now they struggle to pasture their cattle and goats and grow corn on lands where there is barely enough water. Many children grow up in families living on less than $1.50 a day. Food, clothing and education are luxuries that are intermittently available.
The vision of the Elders is a school to give all Maasailand children a solid educational foundation; Kindergarten to Grade 7. Operating a school with qualified teachers, with electricity and with a lunch program costs more money than the village can afford. Tuition/year is only $250 per child. This is beyond the grasp of most families.
For the Love of Africa works with Nashipay Maasai School to help the Council of Elders realize their vision and encourage children and their families to adapt to life in modern Tanzania. Your gift will support the children of Makuyuni to grow up with a solid foundation. Your gift provides funding to create a space for one child for a full school year and make education a reality for all children, not just those whose families can pay fees. Rest assured that 100% of your donation will go to Nashipay Maasai School to support education for ALL children.
