MAKE A DIFFERENCE

There are 486 families from the Maasai Tribe living in the Orkisima Village. Less than 27% of the children of the village that should be going to school currently attend primary and secondary and less than 1% of the community have attended University studies. The natural, socio-economic and cultural challenges of the village limit the children from reaching their dreams or even to dream at all.

With your help and experience you will be a direct contributor to enable the community to have access to equal opportunities, overcome educational barriers, preserve Maasai traditions and culture to help them achieve the impossible and promote an integrated society.

What's in it for you?

Being a Trustee is a challenge but very rewarding. Everything you achieve and accomplish will make a direct difference to the Maasai community. You will be part of an international team from all backgrounds and gain experience in other areas. 

The village is located right next to Tanzania's best national parks, you will have the opportunity to meet the community and the surrounding wildlife!

This will be a lifechanging experience!
