Overland Safaris commits to:
Helping Maasai girls who traditionally are given no voice and few options.
Our goal is, having received a well-rounded education of mind and heart, these students will return to their communities to be leaders of positive change while nurturing respect for their people’s rich history and culture.
We work with local organizations to help disadvantaged girls access education and avoid early marriage, and to provide medical treatment for children whose parents cannot afford it. With your support, we can help more even young people survive and thrive.
We provide active support in the communities within the areas which we operate.
