MCI has built two schools for girls â€“ The Fred Baron Maasai Girlsâ€™ School, a day school which enrolls 150 girls, ages 5 through 12, and Mara Hills Academy, a boarding school that enrolls 100 girls, ages 12 through 18.
The Fred Baron Maasai Girlsâ€™ School, established in March 2008, is located on the northern border of the Maasai Mara Game Reserve in Southern Kenya. The school provides educational opportunities for 150 Maasai girls between the ages 5 and 12. Since first opening, the school has grown to include seven classrooms, a computer lab, a kitchen and two teachersâ€™ cottages.
Mara Hills Academy, located near our headquarters in the Indoyion Oloip area of the Maasai Mara game reserve, is a boarding school that enrolls 100 girls, ages 12- 18, at a time when most Maasai girls are preparing to get married and raise a family. MHAâ€™s goal is to graduate confident, well-rounded young women who are armed with the tools they need to make good life choices. The schoolâ€™s academically rigorous liberal-arts program covers history, literature, math, science and several languages.
Local Schools that We Support
MCI also supports three regional schools â€“ Njanga Olo Losgero School, Enkongu Narok Village School, El Kurot School â€“ through our feeding program, tuition assistance, and academic and technology support.
