Maasai School Visit
The school is a community kindergarten/pre-school for young children unable to afford education offered by expensive private academies. The children really love a visit and are very fond of cameras and picture taking!
What to expect
It is due to high linguistic diversity, the legacy of colonialism and the need for knowledge of international languages such as English and French in employment and higher education, most schooling in Africa takes places in languages that teachers and pupils do not speak natively, and in some cases simply do not understand. There is considerable evidence that pupils schooled in a second language achieve poorer results than those schooled in their mother tongue, as lack of proficiency in the second language impairs understanding and encourages ineffective rote learning reason for the low education rates in Africa is the lack of proper schooling facilities and unequal opportunity for education across countries.
Many schools across Africa find it hard to employ teachers due to the low pay and lack of suitable people. This is particularly true for schools in remote areas. Most people who manage to receive education would prefer to move to big cities or even overseas where more opportunities and higher pay await. Thus, there will be an overly large class sizes and high average number of students per teacher in a school
We often arrange some candy, pencils or little books beforehand. Donations are much appreciated to help the school(s) develop. During the visit, dependng on your own schedule you can also attend a class if you wish.
DURATION: 1 - 3 hours
RATE: for free
Note: This experience does not need to be pre-booked but just let us know that you're interested in participating!
Maasai church visit
A traditional church visit will take about 2 to 3 hours and is one of the best cultural experiences you can have. Members of the community will walk to church in order to meet their friends and relatives, to preach, sing and dance together. Singing and dancing are a way to communicate with one another, bringing people together. All men, women and children will sing traditional Maasai songs and perform dances for you.
Even though the Maasai are a culture in transition they hold their traditions dear.These traditions form an important part of their identity and way of life in a rapid changing modern world.
Also, attending church for the Maasai, is a way to gain recognition among their peers and to stay in contact with one another. In short, it brings people together!
DURATION: 2 to 3 hours
Note: this experience is only possible on a Sunday!
