Overview

AKP helps the Maasai manage their traditional homeland

The natural resources and astounding biodiversity of the Masai Mara draw visitors from around the globe. In 1982 AKP formalized our long history of collaboration with local Maasai communities to plan their own development and enterprise priorities. AKP programs include building classrooms; sponsoring student school fees; developing micro-enterprise initiatives for women’s groups; encouraging early literacy through the introduction of digital e-readers (Kindles) now in nine schools; and introducing local Maasai children to their natural heritage with field trips into the Masai Mara National Reserve.
