Maasai Water Project Small Boma School (SBS)

Project summary

Limited access to basic education and resulting disenfranchisement from decision-making bodies are the greatest threats to the natural environment, local culture, and economic empowerment of indigenous Maasai people in the Ngorongoro Conservation Area (NCA) in Tanzania. Maasai Water Project (MWP) works with local leaders to provide access to education while respecting the Maasai’s unique culture and settlement geography. Traditional Maasai construction methods and materials are used to erect Small Boma Schools (SBSs) to provide safe, sustainable access to preschool, kindergarten, and adult education.
