Olkimitare school ~ Staff House

To secure excellent, long term teaching staff for our community school children, an in-situ teacher’s accommodation is a very important asset to have. Especially as our school are located in remote locations, the daily commute is not just a ‘walk in the park’. This building will showcase a combination of recycling & living comfort.

Our mission is to join with local peoples and partners to support traditional and sustainable ways of living in harmony with wildlife, ecosystems and the environment.

Our Pillars

Established in 2004, the Kicheche Community Trust has become a reliable source of funding for projects in and around the conservancy communities where Kicheche operates. Our mission is to encourage the preservation of the environment whilst improving the welfare of the community through improved health and education facilities. We strive to empower the community through training and revenue earning projects too. The Trust builds on four corner posts of Community Welfare:

The importance of education is paramount. We promote education through the provision of class rooms, bursaries, schoolbooks and educative awareness programs.

Good healthcare is a basic right. Through our awareness campaigns and regular clinic support, we can improve the necessary care to our communities.

We wish to better the lives of our communities in the longer run, by means of revenue earning projects, self-help groups and digital skills training programs.

Protecting the environment and promoting conservation through
awareness campaigns within the conservancies or privately run projects.

How we work

Support by Kicheche Camps

In support of the Trust, the Kicheche Camps donate $5 for each bednight that clients reside at camp. These contributions function as our core-operating funding which cover all admin and running costs. Excess funds are then allocated towards those projects which short of funding.

How you can support

Guests can also directly contribute to support a particular project(s). The Kicheche Community Trust allocates all funds purely to projects, no admin fees are withheld.
For people traveling to Kenya, bringing donated equipment is very useful such as pens, pencils, paper, paint, exercise books and the like (check list). Please refrain from sending any donations unannounced by postal services. If you would like to donate goods, kindly contact us so we can recommend the most cost effective solution.
Financial donations are also most welcome and gratefully received too. Kindly click the below button for more info:

Urgent Appeals

Our bigger and longer term projects need crowd funding. It’s not always about one person doing one big thing… it’s about a lot of people doing many small things together that really makes the difference: little things make big things happen!

Naboisho School ~ Bottle Toilet block (4 doors)

As per government guidelines 1 toilet is needed for every 25 children enrolled in school. Sadly that is far from the reality in most Kenyan’s schools. We managed to donate this bottle toilet block already in 2019 but still have a few to go. A great showcase to combine recycling and sanitation in one!

Laikipia School ~ Sanitary Pads

Personal hygiene and menstrual health education have been a great need in the community. There is a great need to support the girls with reusable sanitary towels and menstrual cups, to help prevent monthly school absence amongst young women. This is an ongoing project with trimester budget.
