Community Projects

One of the goals of Maasai Wanderings is to provide opportunities to those who otherwise would not have recieved them. We are able to use our profits to provide assistance in these areas by funding various projects that we have initiated ourselves. Along the way we have received intermittent funding boosts from individuals like family and friends in Australia and around the world who have identified with our goals.
If you would like to help us achieve our goals, please visit our fundraising page and make a donation. We are currently fundraising for classroom refurbishment at Matimu Primary School. Some of our current community projects within the Arusha area include:

Ilkurot Primary & Nursery School is located approximately 30km north of Arusha, Tanzania in a Maasai village called Ilkurot (meaning “dusty place”).

From 2008, we have begun to assist in Esilalei, a Maasai village along the shores of Lake Manyara. Together with Into Africa UK and Belafrica (Europe), we have built their first classroom – a Nursery school for 120 students.

Le Manyatta & Matimu Primary Schools are located approximately 20km north of Arusha, Tanzania in a Maasai village called Le Manyatta (meaning ‘protected place’ in the Maa language). They are schools that was built approximately thirty years ago by the Tanzanian government, beginning as 3 mud classrooms.

We are proud members of Pack for a Purpose an initiative that allows travelers like you to make a lasting impact in the community at your travel destination. If you save just a few kilos of space in your suitcase and take supplies for the projects we support in need, you’ll make a priceless impact in the lives of our local children and families.
