A school for Masai kids - KIA Learning House

This project began with a dream: The dream to create a school for kids in the KIA (Kilimanjaro International Airport) area located in the outskirts of Arusha, Tanzania.

This project began with a dream. The dream was to create a school for the kids in the KIA (Kilimanjaro International Airport) area located in the outskirts of Arusha, Tanzania. This area is populated by Masai families who live in very poor conditions.

There are few schools outside of the Arusha city area and no schools that can accommodate the life of young Masai children who must care for traditional chores (goat and cow herding).  

Often, in the poorest areas of the world, there are no schools. In places where there are schools, those institutions are generally a inadequate imitation of those in more affluent community. This, is our story....

Village Life and the Impact of the KIA Learning House

The name of the village is Majengo. It lies 2 hours from the city of Arusha and 30 minutes from the Kia International Airport.

The children in this area are not expected nor encouraged to attend school. Instead, they are raised to raise goats and cows which are the traditional economic status symbols of the Masai people.

In a very short time, we have realized
the essential nature of the
KIA Learning House in the village.

The house, well, farm, store and resources are light years nicer and more modern than any institution in the area, which has immediately given our project a foothold of legitimacy among a people who chose to remain isolated from historically damaging western ideologies.
