Oloolaimutia Community 
 

In Kenya, we contribute to the so-called ‘last mile´ health care development. The Maasai Community in Olooloimutia, about 6 hour's drive southwest of Nairobi, is a village community on the edge of the Maasai Mara with limited access to social infrastructure facilities. Here we hook on the problems of the residents and ambitions of the health workers in the village.

 

We use the Community Based Approach whereby we first visualize the existing situation and ambition and pick up supported solutions from the members of the community. Then, we will look at how we can make a difference on a small scale.


At the moment Namayiana Safaris supports the Maasai community in different ways. We employ local guides for safaris or walks and help the Maasai ladies to get income by selling jewelry and decoration to our guests. Guests who decide to sleep in our guesthouse pay a Fee per Person per night for our school fund in the village. Moreover, people who visit a Maasai village pay a fee to Oloolaimutia Primary school.
We are also always looking for people who want to support a child with school fees. At the moment we pay them for three Kids.
Last month we also had a small Fundraiser to buy hay for our starving cows.
