A Few Words

About Us

Maasai women face unprecedented challenges to their livelihoods, their identities, their communities, and their sense of place within their communities and the world.

Maasai women are committed to the survival of their communities and the right to determine their ways of life, and we support their efforts. We support their needs through girl school retention and successful completion, maternal health care education, climate change solutions, and sustainable livelihoods through optimizing the sale of beads through Olale Lang, Goat Rearing Program and other income-generating activities.

Patinaai Osim is a term of endearment used by Maasai mothers, preserved for their children, that loosely translates to, “My little one who gives me warmth”.

Who we are

We are a non-profit organization, seeking to serve nomadic girls and women in Kajiado County by addressing reproductive health and education challenges among nomadic girls and women through capacity building and empowerment.

Maasai women are especially disadvantaged in their access to formal education and other opportunities to develop leadership in the world outside of their communities.

In this regard, we are open to multilateral collaboration with like-minded partners, both locally and internationally, who can provide possible collaborations that meet the needs of our local populace towards their improvement and enrichment of quality of life.

Mission
Create sustainable livelihoods and empower nomadic communities to speak up and uplift their social-economic status.
Vision
To have empowered and resilient girls and women as change-makers in the nomadic community.
