Oliashare parents helped prepare materials for AKTF teams to repair their children’s school.

Nailepu got new water tanks, thanks to Dig Deep. These will help capture and store fresh water for the dry school year.

AKTF facilitates the production of reusable pads by local women. These promote female hygiene and are vital for young women to be able to finish their education.

Snares are everywhere in Masai Mara. Our team works diligently to dismantle and remove them.

Our team works closely with the women of Maasai Mara.

The Team returning a baby eland to its mother. Sometimes, the community members think baby elands have been abandoned, and they ‘rescue’ them — however, usually the mother has hidden her baby so that she can go feed, and then she returns to the baby in the evening.
