Do you want to know everything we have achieved during 2021?
SCHOOL: WE KEEP MOVING FORWARD.
Despite the difficulties that covid has produced in families and their schooling, during the past year, we managed to get 165 students, 93 boys and 72 girls, of whom 56 have been permanently housed in our two residences.
SALE OF HANDICRAFTS: WE CONTINUE TO EMPOWER WOMEN.
We continue to receive orders from our collaborating companies such as Tempe (Grupo Inditex) and Grupo Pikolinos.
Thanks to online sales, last year we closed 53 operations for an amount of 1,376.50 euros. A fundamental money that allows Masai women to continue working self-sufficiently and improve the livelihood of their families.
Last October, the person in charge of working with women at Adcam was in Kenya preparing and planning the new collections that include new designs and that will be launched throughout this year 2022.
MICROCREDIT AND SUPPORT FOR SELF-EMPLOYMENT:
During the year 2021 we encourage the purchase of vegetables and fruits for sale in local markets to the Masai themselves or Camps that are open.
We are especially grateful for the donations in kind and school supplies made during the month of November by our godmother Bisila Bokoko. Through her BBES Foundation, she gave our teachers 93 books in Swahili for the use of the library that bears her name.
Thanks to Tempe-Grupo Inditex, we had a donation of backpacks for our school children.
Likewise, through the Afrian pads company, in Nairobi, a purchase of 79 packs of sanitary napkins was made for the girls and the female teachers.
And the UEFA foundation (Lemex), which is dedicated to promoting sports, wanted to give us a donation of foot balls for the students of our school in Kenya.
But if there is a milestone that marked the end of 2021, this was the complete reconstruction of our children’s residence, which burned down during the month of November, in record time. Thanks to your contributions and generosity, we were also able to replace all the belongings that the children lost and give them back their smiles.

Without your support during all this time our work would not have been possible. Thanks!
