Our programs seek to collaborate with Maasai communities in Kenya by supporting education and local economic empowerment efforts, as well as by building lasting relationships and partnerships. Currently our projects focus on supporting the community through empowerment projects, while striving to maintain the health of the Maasai's cultural and living landscapes by working with local people. BCI projects take the form of youth education, community-based conservation, income diversification, and other community assistance.
The Maasai are a group of indigenous, pastoralist people who live in Kenya and Tanzania. They still live traditionally, keeping their rich culture, despite pressures from a world modernizing around them. Displacement from tribal lands, frequent droughts, livestock diseases, lack of access to education are just some of the hardships they face.
