KILIMANJARO – ALICE FOR KILIMANJARO
Since 2013 we have been guaranteeing education and a meal a day to all students, and we have been providing teachers with salaries that are not paid by the government (6 teachers of a total of 9). Before our arrival, these teachers got their salaries only occasionally and only thanks to students’ parents’ sacrifices. We provided all classrooms with desks and we created a fund for students’ health care.
We built the teachers’ house, so that children can have classes every day and can get a permanent high-quality education. In 2015 we managed to inaugurate a fence to face charging elephants and, at the end of last year, we finally managed to build a pipeline running from a well to the school to provide our children with drinkable water.
Our partner for this project is LIGHT OF MAASAI, managed by Elaine Bannon, an Irish woman, former company manager, who some years ago decided to live with the Maasai community. She has become a new “Karen Blixen” among Rombo people.
