How We Work to Realize Our Vision
Cooperation and Collaboration: Responsible
decision making on issues affecting the Maasai community, wildlife,
and their shared habitat is accomplished by coordinated cooperation
among Maasai communities, local and national governments, and environmental,
educational, business and research institutions both locally and internationally.
communication, workshops and community-based education programs help
Maasai communities become more aware of social, economic, and political
issues affecting their well-being, including moral and legal rights
to land tenancy and self-determination.
Economic Development: Wise
development and conservation on Maasailand in Kenya and Tanzania requires
constant evaluation of proposed projects, monitoring of ongoing developments
in the field, and also research, planning and implementation of innovative
wildlife and community-based projects.
Environmental Preservation: The
Maasai have vast knowledge and experience as custodians of our natural
habitat, and must therefore be active participants in wildlife conservation
programs and habitat preservation with local, national and international
conservation and wildlife management institutions.
order to assure responsible decisions on issues affecting the Maasai
community and land, the needs of the Maasai people and wildlife of
Maasailand must be represented before local, national and international
governing bodies and decision makers.
