The Masai are great eco warriors whose knowledge of the land and its conservation is second to none. As they travel with their herds they are vigilant about preserving it for the future and hence their wanderings are more strategic than you might at first realize. And our Masai community have embraced bio-gas systems.

One Horizon is very proud of its ability to be able to provide employment for local community projects. One of the main projects is fencing. The purpose of these fencing projects is to secure property from intruders but at the same time not to hinder the movement of wild animals. Recently and in the area where we do a lot of work, the problem has been hyenas and leopards that raid the Masai’s herds. It’s a great project

Whether its grandma sitting on her 3 seat lounge as she takes it home on a motorbike, or the acrobatic antics of a bus conductor, transport in Nairobi can be a life threatening scenario. A point of view that using local transport providers supports the local economy is a valid one. And in these days of ‘responsible tourism’ it makes good sense. But travelers in Nairobi may be wise to revisit decisions about how they get around.

He lives in the world of ancient traditions that the Masai hold dear, but also he’s increasingly exposed to the developing world that Kenya embraces. Like many young Masai men with this ‘dual citizenship’, Risa is already navigating the inevitable challenges in amazing ways and exemplifies credentials that make him a great ambassador for both his tribe and his nation.

Our guide, Carol took us to a village of the Kikuyu tribe on the outskirts of Nairobi to get a first hand look at their way if life.  We sat with them, cooked and ate with them.

Building new classrooms changes the lives of disadvantaged Kenyan children who come into One Horizon’s orbit. In many of our communities, parents either struggle to send their children to school or, in their despair, just give up.  An education can be way down on the priority list, not because parents don’t value it, but simply because obtaining enough food takes every bit of money, effort and energy they have.
