What We Do
Build and Support Schools: Ensuring that Maasai girls complete school
By focusing on female education, MCI seeks to improve the social, economic and political strength of the entire Maasai community. We have built two schools for girls -- 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.
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.
MCI supports our schools and communities with:
- Solar-powered computer labs that give students and their families access to the Internet, so they can better compete in Kenyaâ€™s job market. Also, with Internet access MCI does not incur textbook costs because all of our instructional materials are online. So far, MCI has built three solar-powered computer labs. Read more >
- School feeding programs that encourage students to attend and stay in school. MCIâ€™s feeding program reaches approximately 500 students every day. Since it began in 2007, participating schools have seen attendance grow exponentially. Read more >
- Tuition assistance to pay for school fees and uniforms for students attending government-run schools Read more >
