In the last 18 months, we have been learning more about the work of Africa Amini Alama (Africa, I believe in you) which is a charity that improves lives for Maasai particularly in the arid area near Ngare Nanyuki.
In August, our Diploma students walked from Mt Meru (Arusha Students) and Mt Kilimanjaro (Moshi Students) and met at Pamoja Secondary School where they engaged in tree planting, classroom building and classroom resource development with the Maasai students. This came about from conversations with Cornelia (Mama Chiara) who is the co-founder of the organisation. Cornelia and her mum, Christine have now gone on to construct a dispensary, several schools, a workshop for carpenters, bricklayers and mechanics.
We anticipate increased involvement of our students in these projects and we are already looking ahead to the Pamoja Walk in 2020!
Each of the projects is led by Maasai with the aim of sustaining themselves in the long term. With a team of over 200 employees, around 100 patients are treated daily and around 1000 children are cared for.
In order to finance the different projects of Africa Amini Alama, the charitable tourism organization Africa Amini Life was founded. All income that is generated through overnight stays, activities and excursions are directly invested in the orphanage, schools and hospital.
In talking to Cornelia this week, she came up wth the idea of making Maasai Lodge and Hillside Retreat available for Tanzanian Residents at a discounted price as a relaxing place to continue the distance learning.
