Mara Book and Conservation Clubs is a Community Based Organization located in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. It runs wildlife clubs in schools in the region where club members and volunteers team up in tree-planting exercises, book donations and game drives to the game reserve. As a conservation oriented organization, it raises awareness about the numerous threats to the flora and fauna of Mara Ecosystem. It enlist community members in these initiatives to save endangered species of Kenya’s wildlife.
In the advent of the Covid 19 pandemic, which has made funding sources to effectively dry up, the organization sought more donors and funding from the government as well as generating its own revenue. It now organizes hiking trails to Nyakweri forest which is considered a dispersal point for wildlife in the Maasai Mara Game Reserve. It is also a maternity and birthing ground for Elephants.
Volunteers and guests get to immerse themselves in the rich cultural heritage of the Maasai people where they learn about herding, milking, beadwork and other customs.
One hundred percent of funds raised are recycled back to buy learning materials and supplies to nearby schools which are ill-equipped with these resources.
