Welcome to ELAND!
Killing a lion, in the tradition of the Maasai tribe, bestowed honor and prestige on the young warrior. The warrior saved the precious cattle from slaughter, the family and village from danger, and proved a man had a hero's heart. In today's Kenya, the Maasai do not kill lions, but great threats, greater than the lions of the past, prowl their ancient countryside. These modern lions are the shrinking lands and poverty, untreated disease, and lack of education.
We at ELAND are looking for those around the world with a hero's heart. Though they may not be from the Maasai, they share with us a great respect for a culture-rich people, and a great compassion to preserve and protect a people from harm and destruction. We are working very day to find those who love and those who care to help us equip the Maasai with the tools to overcome these modern lions of ignorance, disease, and poverty.
Our Mission: To develop and implement education, health, and economic opportunities for Maasai communities and their neighbors through the exchange of ideas, skills and sharing of experience.
Our Vision: We envision a just, progressive and Self-Sustaining community for the Maasai people.more
