a project, on line :
In 2010, M.A.A.
equiped fully a boy's dormitory in Ilntumtum village. We bought
for them beds, matresses, bedings, pilows, and also kitchen utensils.
The building of the dormitory was finished 3 years ago (funded by
KCF) but since then abandonded because of lack of further funds.
We thank for the help in this project :
- La Fondation ROBIN DE BOIS
- La Fondation BNP PARIBAS
- UNWG (don 2009)
The dormitory hosts 50 pupils from 8 to 15 years
old, that live with their families quite distant from school, so
they could not get educated before.

for 50 maasai girls at Ilntumtum
Ilntumtum village, Narok district
How you can school Maasai children living at a distance of 3-4 hours by foot from the nearest school ? After hard thinking on the question and taking into account the local conditions (no road, no public transport) we launch the project of building a dormitory near the school. In that way, the pupils can stay 5 days a week in the Ilntumtum village and follow school lessons every day, then go back at their remote homes for the week-end.
The MAA (Maasai Aid Association) executive committee is very happy to announce that this project has been successfully completed.
The project comprises :
building a dormitory with a total surface of 200 m2, and a capacity of 50 beds, just besides the primary school of Ilntumtum
building a kitchen/cantina next to the dormitory (80 m2)
full equiped dormitory with bedings and bedsheets, pillows etc, and fully equiped kitchen with utencils.
construction of a water tank with a capacity of 37’000 litres and a collection system (pipes gathering rainfall water from the roofs of the two buildings)
four toillettes and bathrooms for the 50 children.
The Narok County Council offers food to puplis, during the school year.
We thank heartily the following donors :
