School in a Rural Alailelai Village The Maasai Tribe of Sendui live in a very remote part of Tanzania in the Ngorongoro Conservation and live in extreme poverty. Drought and lack of access to water makes their lives even more difficult. Means of public transport are few and far between and the roads are in poor condition.
The Maasia Tribe is one of the last pastoral tribes and sending their children to school in neighboring villages is next to impossible.
Sisters for Peace funded the building of a new kindergarten, hosted by Maasai Partners, an organization that is committed to improving the lives of the Maasai people in this area.
Five members from Sisters for Peace traveled to the village in March of 2016. This school will allow young, local Maasia children to assimilate into a school system taught in Swahili, which isn’t spoken at home, and give them a better chance for succeeding in primary education and beyond.
Our hearts were deeply touched by the Maasai people and by the work that MP's is doing.
Education provides an opportunity to a better life, and as soon as we heard that the families in this area needed funds to build a kindergarten, we wanted to be part of it! We are thrilled to be given the opportunity to be part of something that has the potential to change so many lives.
