We are delighted to be visiting the Traeger School again where we will be participating at the Diversity Day event.
Our partners from the Maasai communities in Kajiado County (Kenya, East Africa) will give short presentations about their culture and way of life with a special focus on how living on the savannahs in Maasai Land shapes their livelihood for both Wisconsin First Nations and African Survey classes .
Our partners from the Maasai communities in Kajiado County (Kenya, East Africa) will present to all third graders in three classrooms during their science unit on Thursday, December 6. Their presentations will focus on their way of life with a special emphasis on water scarcity and health issues related to living with very little resources.
On Saturday, December 1 from 6:00 pm-9:00 pm we are hosting the Second Maasai Open House. Three members of the Kenyan Maasai Community will be sharing stories from the savannas and fund raising for IndiMark.org by selling handmade jewelry, handbags, sandals and art work made by Maasai women. The money raised will be put toward drilling wells to produce clean, convenient water for the Maasai community, freeing Maasai girls to attend school instead of fetching water.
