Programs

Karen Blixen Camp Trust has five programs.

Conservation: The Helicopter Program

We work closely with our partner, the Mara Elephant Project (MEP), to protect the savanna elephants, who are threatened by poaching for the illegal ivory trade, climate change, and an increasing number of human-elephant conflicts.

Vocations:
The Educational Initiative

There is a great need for education and job opportunities for the local Maasai youth, who often want to remain in the Mara as adults. The Karen Blixen Camp Trust Educational Initiative offers vocational programs in culinary arts, language, business, and information technology.

Empowerment

We support the local women by empowering them with business opportunities and vocational training.

Education:
The Mararianta Village School Program

We support the local Mararianta Village School by fundraising for their development needs and school supplies. This way we ensure that the Mararianta community receives directs benefits from tourism and can see a purpose of conserving wildlife.

Ecosystems: The Movable Bomas Program

The aim of this programme is to help the Maasai livestock owners manage their herd, while avoiding over- grazing and human-wildlife conflicts. A movable boma is an excellent solution to benefit both the population and wildlife.
