COMMUNITY EMPOWERMENT

The Mara Discovery and Empowerment centre is a community based initiative whereby several self help groups around Aitong have joined forces to operate income:

Generating activities such as

  • tree nursery,
  • beading groups,
  • dance groups,
  • eco clubs for youth,
  • computer and language classes
  • soon we hope to set up a job and IT centre too.

Through generous donations from the Yann Foundation, the Kicheche Trust has been able to build a new centre. The Mara North Conservancy (through Obel Foundation funding) have installed a full solar power system and 12 computers. The centre would like to start an eco club and Kicheche Trust is looking to furnish the library with books and DVD’s about wildlife from all over the world.
