Daily Departures Available!

Day 1 Maasai Mara
Meet your ME to WE representative on arrival in the Maasai Mara and transfer to camp. Enjoy lunch, followed by an orientation of ME to WE's sustainable development model.
 
Learn how ME to WE works with rural communities to break the cycle of poverty and achieve long-term community development. The five pillars of the model are: quality primary education, clean drinking water and sanitation, health care services, agriculture and alternative income projects. After lunch, go on a guided walking tour of a local primary school. See the difference between an old school structure and a new working school built by WE Villages.
 
After dinner, rest up for tomorrow. (LD)
 
Day 2 Maasai Mara
Join the mamas at Emori Joi for a special walk through the community. Learn more about how the Kipsigis organize their homes and lives. Fetch water with the mamas, a task the women perform daily. Share a meal and participate in a discussion about the changes taking place in the community regarding gender and culture.
 
In the afternoon, roll up your sleeves and work alongside Maasai and Kipsigi community members as you help to build a new school. After dinner, relax and reflect on this invigorating day. (BLD)
 
Day 3 Maasai Mara
Visit an authentic Kenyan market and learn about the economic environment in which the community members live. Continue working on the school-building site, perhaps trying a different role.
 
In the afternoon, visit the Baraka Medical Clinic and Medicinal Garden. The clinic serves over 30,000 community members, promoting healthy living and providing preventative, curative and rehabilitative services to the most vulnerable segments of the Kenyan population. Learn about the medicinal plants grown in the shamba (garden), including moringa, aloe vera, thyme, spider plant, and many more. This shamba supplements the food program in local schools, as well as helps to decrease malnutrition in the communities by providing supplements to both pregnant mothers and their children. (BLD)
 
Day 4 Maasai Mara / Depart
Go on a sunrise hike with the Maasai before bidding your new friends a fond Kwaheri. Take a short flight back to Nairobi. Enjoy a farewell lunch and visit the Sheldrick Elephant Orphanage where you'll get the chance to experience these fascinating animals up close. Rest and re-pack in a dayroom before your departure transfer to the airport for your flight home this evening. This may be the end of your adventure trip, but it is also the beginning of your personal journey to carry your experience forward. (BL)
