Africa Schools of Kenya (ASK) works in conjunction with the Maasai people living in the Kajiado South District of 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, 480 students attend Esiteti School from nursery school to 8th grade. Over 120 Esiteti School students and graduates receive annual scholarships through ASK’s Student Sponsorship program and ASK is contracted with boarding high schools in the area. 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.
