The Maasai are traditionally nomadic people, travelling from place to place with their cattle. Due to an enormous loss of land (basically because rich people bought it and built houses on it), they are forced to adapt. This often means to settle.
Due to their nomadic culture, the Maasai never used to go to school. Today they depend more and more on the market economy. Lifestock products are sold for the purchase of beads, clothing and grains. To be able to engage in the life outside the villages, education is essential.
Kimuka primary school is located in Kajiado County, East Kenya. Around 300 Maasai children go to the school, encompassing classes from grade one to six, as well as a pre school. The teachers are amazing and give their best every day.However, they are barely and learning materials available and whatever is there is broken or not on the latest standard.
The children want to learn so badly and deserve to get a good education, which in turn will provide them with the capability to work and feed themselves and their families.
