WHO ARE WE?

American students and educators work in Africa with Kenya’s Maasai tribe. Participants from both continents exchange ideas, write music, and share in wildlife conservation activities.  Students are immersed in the local community for a life-changing cultural experience.  After the journey, the program continues here in the US, and will result in the release of a CD of original music and a wildlife book written in 3 languages!

HOW ARE WE FUNDED?

Participants and their families are personally financing the majority of trip costs, while working long hours with MMP advisors to get funding for the balance of project expenses. Local fundraising has included cell phone recycling, singing competitions, aluminum can recycling, car washes and babysitting, with more to come as the weather warms up!  These hard-working students are also ‘paying it forward’ by raising funds to offer scholarships for deserving applicants.

ABOUT OUR STUDENTS 

We’re proud of our students for their enthusiasm and willingness to work hard.  They are not sitting back and waiting for this program to be handed to them.  Some have been working for more than 3 years to make this experience possible, learning what it takes to organize and finance a project like this.  Help us show how proud we are of our students for undertaking such a brave adventure!
