Africa Schools of Kenya (ASK) works in conjunction with the Maasai people living in the Kajiado District of southern Kenya. Since 2007, ASK’s focus has been on the 1200+ Maasai people living in the Esiteti and Mbaringoi communities located in the Olgulului-Ololarashi Group Ranch overlooking Mt. Kilimanjaro. Esiteti Primary School was built and accredited by the Kenyan government in 2009. Currently, 400 students attend Esiteti School from nursery school to 7th grade. Over 120 Esiteti School students and graduates receive yearly scholarships through ASK’s Student Sponsorship program and ASK is contracted with 22 boarding high schools. Six girls and six boys are eligible each year for sponsorship through high school, allowing girls specifically to continue their education rather than be married and pregnant at a young age. ASK facilitates and underwrites the development and implementation of ongoing educational programs while building awareness on critical global issues such as girl’s education, early marriage and pregnancy, healthcare, leadership training, community-sustainability and wildlife conservation.
Book Drive for Esiteti School
Students of four local elementary schools participated in the Kids Helping Kids Book Drive - Crane Country Day, Cold Spring School, Loma Vista and Chaparral Elementary. Students held their own bake sales, coin drives, book fairs and an African style Open Air Market with handmade crafts. One thousand children's books have been purchased and will be delivered and installed into Esiteti School's first ever library during the upcoming Kenya trip April 28 - May 3. ERB Jewelry donated 20% of their total sales during March, and American Riviera Bank also participated. Hear NPR radio announcement from March 11th.
