2015

In 2015 we returned to England for 5 weeks where we undertook a large number of school visits and performances, raising money that ultimatly enabled the building of another classroom and the commencement of a feeding program at the school.

2014

In 2014 our dance troop return to the UK for another fundraising tour, including a performance at the prestigeous Royal Geographical Society in London. Details below:

21st May- 19:00-20:30

Performances and song at the wonderful Royal Geographical Society, London, England. Join us for an intimate evening where we will undertake traditional maasai song, dance and story in order to raise awareness of the work we undertake in the Rift Valley, Kenya, supporting a small village with community projects. Including the build and finance of the school adopted by our sponsors. Following our performances and presentations there will be the opportunity to purchase ethically made traditional Maasai jewelry to further support our people.
