  • This project is a continuation of the Ormiti environmental project. The limitation of human / elephant conflicts is one of the major problems in this area. The Ang’ata Rangai community is made up of 9 bomas (villages), it is located on the Kitenden corridor (thousand-year-old elephant migration route), far from the first town (Kimana). The closest primary school to the village is 4 km through the bush. The youngest children in the community are not in school, not because of the distance, but because of a major safety problem due to the presence of wild animals that extend beyond the boundaries of Amboseli National Park. The way to school is not safe, hyenas, lions and elephants roam this vast migratory corridor that joins Tsavo National Park, the Chyulu Hills and Tanzania.  This is a request that we have decided to respond to, in agreement with the representatives of the Kenyan Ministry of Education of Kajiado County. It is a community that we know well and with which we have already carried out projects. The construction of the first class will allow the children of this community to have access to education from January 2017.
