The Thorn Tree Project is run and managed by a dedicated community of volunteers based in New York City and paid education experts in northern Kenya in close partnership with Chief George and the Samburu tribe.

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.
