Goat or sheep

20.00

Cattle is very important to the Maasai. They work hard to take care of their herds and to keep the animals safe and healthy. You could compare a herd to a savings count. When sheep or goats reproduce, the herd will grow. In times of need, a sheep or goat can be sold in order to earn some money. A small goat, that after a few months has become bigger, can be worth a lot more on the market. For example, by donating 1 goat you can make sure that a Maasai family in five years does not have only 1, but 3 goats! The Maasai use the fat and milk of the goats, and eat the meat of the animals if they die or when they are butchered for a special occasion.

The Nanginyi Foundation sponsors families who do not have enough food to eat every day. It is important for the Maasai to eat well, as they perform hard physical labour and need a lot of energy. The Nanginyi Foundation sponsors food packages with rice, beans, maize/corn, tea, sugar, cooking oil and, when available, some vegetables and fruit. Our local coordinator will put together the food packages depending on the current food prices and availability. He will then deliver them to families in need. When you buy a food package in our webshop you can make sure that a Maasai family in need will get support.

School supplies
At the beginning of the school year, we buy school supplies for the children. Pens, pencils, exercise books, a map, a drawing set (with rulers etc.), erasers, a pencil sharpener and a pencil case. To take all of this to school, the children also need a sturdy backpack. When you purchase a school supplies package you can make sure one of our children has enough supplies to perform at their best at school.

School fees
School fees
One of the main goals of the Nanginyi Foundation is to provide access to education for the children. Five days per week they go to the Sasa School, which lies at the edge of the savannah, where they live. They get their lessons in English. We pay the school fees for the children at the beginning of the school year. The school year in Tanzania starts in January and ends in December. The children get days off during all national and religious holidays, and get a month off in June. School fees are our largest expense every year, so every donation is welcome! Access to education gives the children a chance for a brighter future!

Maternity package
Maternity package
Many Maasai-women deliver their babies at home. They often live far from the hospital and do not have proper transportation to get there. After giving birth, the woman gets blood from a cow or a bull (depending on the gender of the baby). They mix the blood with milk and drink it in order to regain some strength. In the few months after birth a mother only eats warmed-up food. The Nanginyi Foundation offers maternity packages to new mothers in need. The package of €10 consists of: rice/beans/maize, sugar, tea, soap, body lotion and cooking oil. The package of €15 also contains a small Maasai cloth for the new baby. With the purchase of this maternity package you can make sure that a Maasai woman has enough means to recover after giving birth and to take care of herself and her new baby!
