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
Help ASK raise funds for 1,000 books to start Esiteti School's first library! Up until now, government-issued textbooks are the only books available, and each book is shared by 3 students. We will be partnering with Cold Spring Student Council to help raise money for this library and we have additional funding to match what the school can raise. Books will be purchased in Nairobi and delivered to the school in late April.
