The Waterholes Restoration Project

The Waterholes Restoration Project is aimed at restoring 30 natural waterholes in Merrueshi Group Ranch. Wildlife and pastoralists of East Africa have for centuries depended on seasonal waterholes.However, due to excessive vegetation growth and soil erosion the main waterholes have silted up. Our goal is to restore the waterholes and harvest rainwater that would otherwise be lost to evaporation or runoff. Click to support or learn more about this conservation project.

PROGRAMS

Goats and Cows Program for Food Security and School Fees

The Maasai people depend on goats and cows for a living. To a Maasai, having a cow is the same as having money or a bank account for an American. The goats and cows provide families with milk, cheese, and school fees for their children. With your help we can open economic opportunities for Maasai families and send children to school. Click to learn more about this worthwhile program or Click to donate a cow or goat.

Maasai Children Education Fund (MCEF)

Well-wisher can now fund education for a Maasai child in Merrueshi Primary School. For $120 you can put a child through school for an entire year. Your support will make education more attainable for a Maasai child with no chance to attended school. Click to send a Maasai child to school today.

Community members' involvement and participation is central in the design and implementation of our programs and projects.
