Books for the Masai School 

Each year we visit Kenya we often bring gifts for the villages we visit. This year we decided to go one step further and buy $1000.00US worth of text books for a Masai school that's close to the Masai Mara Game Reserve. We couldn't have done this without the help of our dear friend and Masai Game Guide Henry Mawani. Henry contacted the local teacher who put together a specific list of the books the children needed. Upon our return to Nairobi we visited the Text Book Store owned by Arvin Shah where we purchased four sets of all the books the teacher requested. Although four sets is helpful, the kids will share, this is just a small portion of what they need. I was great to get this program rolling and we plan to start a specific fund for additional purchases each year we return to Kenya. Stay tuned and stop by our web site to find out more for how you can help donate in the future. Thanks to our very generous guests, Jim & Mimi Heywood, Fred & Kathy Kurtz, and Ed & Faris Charbonneu who donated $250.00US each. My  wife Tanya and I contributed the same.
