Mazingira Libraries Project

Fostering curiosity and a love of nature! 

Our Mazingira (mazingira is Swahili for environment) Libraries Project is delivering fun and engaging learning spaces for students living near important wildlife areas in Maasai community Kenya. Spaces where children can explore the natural world in books and feed their thirst for knowledge.  

As part of our Education for Conservation Program we are building two new library spaces at Illoirero and Kishermoruak Primary Schools. These bright and colourful spaces will be filled with story and reference books about sustainable livelihoods and ecosystems, animals, plants and wild places of the world and how they can protect it.

These spaces will be strongly influenced by nature and traditional Maasai culture and be a learning hubs for students to read, dream and be inspired. They will be spaces for special events to engage with parents and the wider community and spaces where we invest in our future conservation stewards.

This Project will be delivered in a staged approach that will allow students to start accessing learning resources by mid-2021. Expected completion date – mid 2022.
