Join Warrior Trails in our efforts to promote socially conscious, socially responsible tourism in Tanzania. Warrior Trails is dedicated to the preservation of wildlife and local cultures by supporting grass roots initiatives through the Maasai Conservation Fund.
Visiting any of the charitable programs we support can easily be incorporated into your safari itinerary. Guests can visit our supported projects for a few hours, a day, or even overnight.
Shamba Kuku Project
Chickens are easy to raise, and begin earning their keep almost immediately. Five hens will produce 3-4 eggs a day from the start.
The MCF Chicken Farm project aims to train 10 members from Makuyuni Maasai village to build safe and sterile chicken houses, and to raise chickens not just for village consumption, but for market.
Microfinance projects offer women and families to benefit economically from tourism. Wildlife conservation is linked inextricably to the opportunities of local people.
Bead by Bead
Women in Maasai culture are master beaders and make remarkably intricate and beautiful beaded jewellery and other items using art forms passed from mother to daughter over generations. However, middlemen and an inadequate distribution system result in little opportunity for these artisans to generate income for their talent.
Warrior Trails supports Maasai women entrepreneurial programs including the making and marketing of traditionally beaded craft items.
Investing in People
MCF Leadership Centre
An MCF proposal to Architecture for Humanity resulted in a partnership between the MCF and University of San Francisco architectural students. The result: a beautiful Eco-Leadership Centre design, to be built on land acquired by the MCF. Renderings of the project are exceptional and we look forward to this multi-year project, with the MCF Leadership Centre being developed over time as funds become available.
