Members of the Maasai Indigenous Project of Kenya are traveling in the U.S. to raise awareness and funds to improve water collection infrastructure in the southern region of their country in Kajaido County. The Maasai are a nomadic, livestock-based people whose wealth has been measured in cattle and their food base has largely revolved around meat and milk from their livestock.
Through a Vermont connection, these visitors will be coming to present about the challenges of managing water in a part of the world that only spends eight months without rain, as well as their culture and grazing management. They will be staying through the conference on Saturday to learn more about our rotational grazing methods, and to meet new friends who love livestock as much as they do.
Donations to support their infrastructure project will be gratefully accepted.
