RECENT STORIES

MANYATTA LIBRARIES

The 2nd Manyatta Library launched in April 2024! In the village next to Olchorro White Rhino Sanctuary in Olchorro Oirouwa Conservancy, we built it in a round style with thatched roof, characteristic of that region.

Back in Ololchura, the 1st Manyatta Library has become so popular as a Community Center that the elder has asked us to expand it in 2024.

What does the olive tree have to do with the well being of humanity?

A lot! The European olive (Olea europaea) has been a symbol of peace and reconciliation throughout the Mediterranean and Western worlds since the time of the ancient Greeks and Romans; it also appears in the monotheistic religious texts in this way. In Maasai culture, the wild African olive (Oloirien in Maa) has long been sacred as well, signifying both nurturing and strength and still used in ceremonies that honor community.
