Village Clinic is providing basic healthcare services to nearly
5000 Maasai residents of Merrueshi and the neighboring communities.
Apart from basic healthcare services, the village clinic has
a strong emphasis on village hygiene, health education, disease
prevention, treatment, vaccination and nutritional education
for mothers and their children.
aim of Maasai High School is to increase educational opportunities
for hundreds of Maasai children who otherwise not have the chance
to attend high school. This school has become very popular because
of its unique approach to formal education. The school takes
Maasai cultural heritage into account and is economically affordable
for hundreds of pastoralists in Kajiado Dstrict.
Primary School was our first project. The school went from having
classes under the acacia tree to having a full campus with all
classrooms, teachers’ houses, dormitory facilities for
boys and girls, and running water. Merrueshi Primary School
is one of three best schools in Kajiado District. 55% of our
primary school enrollment is girls! This is a tremendous achievement
for a people who once shunned western education for girls.
