Facilitation of Donations & Sponsorships

The Kicheche Community Trust has over the years built and maintained several school class rooms. The Trust sponsors primary school teachers and has funded further education studies, donated thousands of school books and stationary, donated towards school buses and fund 20 educational bursaries.

Kicheche Trust donated a housing unit for the Olare Orok Conservancy community outreach ladies that are based at Koiyaki Guiding School premises.

The school has an intake of about 22 students annually, entirely from the local Maasai community however scholarship of approximately US$2400 is required for each student and this is where further assistance is needed.
