Access to education is a fundamental right. This should not be reserved for urban children. Every child, boy or girl must have access to a school, even in the Maasai countryside. Why ? School not only helps develop the individual by offering them perspectives. But it is also a way to fight poverty, encourage citizenship and develop the region.
Ndoto is committed to building a primary school, which can become independent, in the Arusha region of Tanzania. We want to provide quality education in order to develop the region, to encourage gender equality and ecology.
WATOTO NA NDOTO
Children with a dream
In 2016, a tourist trip leads Niki and Nathan to meet Augustino and Anthony. Unexpected meeting, we exchange numbers and decide to meet again. It is then that we learn that these young men are Maasai. Very curious we want to know more, they then decide to invite us to their village.
After 2 hours on dirt roads, we arrive in the village for two very intense days. During a discussion, the elders tell us of their desire for a school. The idea was born.
February 2019, the Ndoto association is born. The Oltepes primary school will see the light of day.
The association is directed by its 16 members who lead the projects. The members elect the committee which takes care of the management of the association. These are appointed for one year.
