It all began as a kindergarten in a church...

In February 2013, the Maasai women of Ngabobo came to us to ask for support in educating their children. The pastor made the church available, we paid for the teachers, and, from that moment on a school was born.  A blackboard and desk pads were donated to us and this is how one of the most rewarding projects in the remote Maasai Land started.  Now more than 140 children come to the Ngabobo school every day.  

In the summer of 2013, another milestone was achieved for the children of Madebe.  The Berggold family, who have become the coordinators of this school project, raised enough money to enable the children to have a warm porridge meal every day. 

Recognising that education is a key pillar to ensuring a sustainable future for our communities and the Maasai women have worked hard to ensure this is available for their children and future generations.  The Maasai community supplied us with a dilapidated colonial house which we subsequently turned into classrooms.  After a year of being taught in the church, the school now had three separate classrooms.

Thanks to the fundraising efforts of the Berggold family, the new buildings for the Maasai Vision Academy were ready in July 2014 and the children moved into their new school rooms.

Our teaching team is second to none and we now have two teachers in every class.  However, our fundraising continues because giving these children a fantastic education is key to a brighter future for both them and their community. To sponsor a child through school costs just €30 per month…please help.

They say a picture is worth a thousand words…
