THE MAASAI COMMUNITY – KENYA

Maasai - Culture Education Centre

Life in harmony with nature

May be one of the most iconic African communities. As semi-nomads, the Maasai wander freely across the vast land, following rainfall in search of food and water for their cattle. Ancient ceremonies and rituals initiate the Maasai to their life journey, beautifully decorated with beads and jewellery.

 

How long this free roaming and celebrations will last for is the big question. Drought, fencing and even schooling are developments that threaten the survival of the Maasai culture.

With our local partner ‘Back to Nature Foundation’ we support the construction of the Maasai Cultural Education Centre (MCEC), where wisdom about life in harmony with nature can be shared with a new generation earth keepers. Together we can safeguard the continuity of this beautiful culture, which is rich for the survival of human mankind.

 

Let’s find out how you and I can become part of this beautiful project.

Project

The reciprocity projects support local communities in their quest to preserve and pass on their heritage and knowledge to future generations. The projects always originate from community members themselves.

To ensure a successful outcome, all reciprocity projects are done in close collaboration with the community and the local NGO partner. We always work with NGOs with resonating missions and visions which we encounter on our photography journeys.
