    What is crowdfunding?

    Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.

    The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.

    Story

    The semi-nomadic lifestyle of the Masaai has been drastically affected by external influences and they are struggling to adapt. Education is a critical factor and there are a few schools in which a mixed western and traditional Masaai education is being developed to ensure that children can maintain their own cultural heritage whilst learning ways to adapt to the growing external influences that they cannot hope to avoid.
    We believe that diverse cultures are critical for the health and well-being of the planet and the human race and that the influence of the western world on others should not be detrimental to their existing indigenous cultures.
    As a small contribution to this self-development, we are travelling to Kenya to install solar panels to the school and to provide text books for the children.
    We have already received some donations and will be contributing to the fund ourselves, but any additional contributions will be most gratefully received.
    Thank you.

      A huge thank you to everyone who contributed to our project in Loita province in Kenya. Your generosity has helped to provide new lighting and a new set of text books in the school as well as solar panels on two Masaai homes. Thank you :-)
