The MASAA project involves 14 women divided in 3 subgroups but working as a unit to design and produce traditional beaded Maasai jewelry.
They live quite remote, about 45 minutes walking from the centre of Msitu wa Tembo. All their houses are quite dispersed, in order to have space to keep the cattle close.
Almost all the women use the earnings of the Masaa program to pay the school fees for their children.
The women told us that via the Maasa Jewellery project they feel part of a big group in which they all work together. The big Kazi na Sala women group (of which the Maasa Jewellery group is a part) helps them to be more part of the Msitu wa Tembo and Londoto community.
