Overview


 

The Samburu people of Northern Kenya live in one of the poorest and most marginalized parts of the world. Their nomadic pastoralist way of life is thousands of years old but it is rapidly changing as they face the challenges of the twenty-first century.

In 2002 when we met the Samburu people they had a dream
—it was very simple—
to get more of their children to come to school.

Today we help the Samburu people to provide education for their children from kindergarten through grade school. WE establish scholarships for high school, technical school and college, and offer mentoring and support targeted toward sustainable employment. 

Together, we are making their dream a reality

The Samburu


 

 

For years, the Samburu in the Sereolipi area have been isolated from the rest of the country. Where they live there are no telephones, electricity, running water, roads, transport or prenatal care. 

However with a new government in kenya committed to development it was clear this was going to change and they realized they needed to be better equipped as the modern world came to them

Our Work


 

In 2001, there were only 130 children at school.

Today, thanks to The efforts of the Thorn Tree Project and its supporters in combination with the committment and hard work of the Samburu people, over 1,500 children attend school.
