Maasai Academy

Optimized-2015 01 Maasai Academy LP (1)

Maasai Academy is located in a remote region of Kenyan Maasailand. The community initially set up the school in a disused church, to provide a better education for their children. There are currently 150 children at the school, and 11 members of staff.

Water supply has been a long standing issue, especially during dry seasons, drip irrigation and water transportation systems are providing water for the school. This will be used for drinking, cooking and cleaning, as well as watering the food forest which will provide nutritious food for the students and generate income for the school. Composting toilets for staff and girls improve sanitation as there are fewer students per toilet, and means girls are less likely to avoid school during their period.
