    Children's Programmes

    Some children are never given the opportunity to go to school, and many of those in school drop out before reaching the end of secondary school – especially girls. Child marriage, child pregnancy, female genital mutilation and child labor are major factors causing drop outs.

    Youth Empowerment

    Population growth and high unemployment rates in the Mara are making it very difficult for youth to secure employment.

Our Projects in the Mara

The Maa Trust was created alongside conservancies to increase the benefits that go back to the local community from leasing their land for conservation. The trust focuses on women, youth and children so that they also receive benefits from conservancies.
