In Maa, the maasai language, ENJIPAI means “happiness”. That is our goal. That is our dream: bring happiness to every child in the Northen Tanzanian village of Mfereji through the opportunity of education.

In Maa, the maasai language, ENJIPAI means “happiness”. That is our goal. That is our dream: bring happiness to every child in the Northen Tanzanian village of Mfereji through the opportunity of education.

Knowledge is not only power, but opportunity; it opens the door to choice, potential, and transformation. The Enjipai Community Project is devoted to making education a possibility for Maasai children. It is a local, grassroots organization that is led by passionate Maasai advocates of education – individuals who care immensely about the future of their culture, and the next generation of youth.

                                            

Prior to the Enjipai Community Project, children within the village were eager for an education, gathering under an acacia tree often in harsh weather to learn, using the tree's protection as their "classroom". With the planning and labour of the community, alongside the fundraising initiative of motivated volunteers, a classroom was built for the community. Happiness spread throughout the village and children from far away distances made the long walk to assemble at the classroom, excited to gain skills which would provide them opportunities for the rest of their life. 

                                  

Now that the school is built, we need your help! The classroom is constructed, but lacking necessary supplies for successful learning. 

Short Term Goals:

  1. Paint for the classroom
  2. Flooring for the classroom (currently dirt floor)
  3. Blackboard
  4. Tables and chairs for students
  5. Books
  6. Learning supplies 
  7. Health and nutrition
  8. Toilet (currently no plumbing) 
  9. Salary for teachers

Long Term Goals:

  1. Clean water project - building wells with the help of the community
  2. Introducing electricity within the community through the use of  solar panels
  3. Community health project - introducing access to health initiatives and health education
