The Samburu people of Northern Kenya live in one of the poorest and most marginalized parts of the world. Their nomadic pastoralist way of life is thousands of years old, but it is rapidly changing as they face the challenges of the twenty-first century.
For years, the Samburu in the Sereolipi area have been isolated from the rest of the country. Where they live there are no telephones, electricity, running water, roads, transport or prenatal care.
We send money to Kenya on a project-by-project basis and visit the schools at least twice a year to evaluate activities.The program directors, parents, teachers, and students in Samburu are totally committed to improving their education and our directors and teachers work long hours and weekends to make sure the students have the best possible education.
