At present there is no access to secondary education in the Masai Mara.
Without the secondary school "leaving" certificate, which is legally required for employment, the majority of Masai children have no access to jobs, and hence powerless to shape their own future.
In 2008 two women with East African roots founded ETC, a UK charity that educates children in the Masai Mara by improving the quality of primary education, and creating the access to secondary education.
Our vision is to provide sustainable educational infrastructure to the region; ensuring socio-economic integration of the Masai into national Kenyan society, whilst preserving their rich community and culture.

Some religious scriptures say that a saint is born when society forgets humanity – there is Krishna who gave us the Bhagvad Gita, Buddha who gave us the Eight fold path and Jesus who gave us Christianity. In many instances, these enlightened souls had to make great sacrifices to show man kind the “right” path.
On 16th December 2012 a 23 year old medical student Jyoti Singh Pandey (referred to by the press as “Amanat”, meaning “treasure”) was gang raped and tortured in Delhi. The reality is that this is nothing unusual in India, particularly in Delhi where a woman is raped on average every 14 hours. Laws are relaxed and attitudes towards women as second class citizens are deep rooted in culture. However, India was so shocked at the level of brutality inflicted that it has caused the type uproar that we have never seen before - this is the much needed “Arab Spring” that India has needed FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
