Announcing the new Lion Kids Camp 2013

Apr 4, 2013 | Categories: Community, Education, Westgate Conservancy | 1 Comment

A lion made of beans! One of the entries for the art competition.

Our Lion Kids programme started in 2009 through the support of our friend Todd Cromwell's Kenyan Kids. Initially, the programme involved taking children on safaris into Samburu National Reserve to give them a positive wildlife experience. Surprisingly, many children who live just on the edge of the Reserve have never even been inside.

More than 100 children have been taken on safari through this programme. We give the children digital cameras and binoculars so they can take their own photos, which we later print for them, so they share and remember their experiences in the Reserve.  To date, Sasaab Lodge and Samburu Intrepids have supported this programme, and children from Sasaab village, Lpus Leluai, and Kiltamany Primary schools ...

Painoti is excited to be given the opportunity to go to school.

We have recently sponsored a young 15 year old Samburu girl, Painoti Letabare, to attend secondary school in Maralal, Samburu District. Painoti comes from the Westgate area in Westgate Conservancy and lives with her parents and younger siblings. She is the first from the family to be given the opportunity to attend secondary school after she completed primary school a few months ago.

Painoti studied at the Lpus Leluai Primary School where she attained 260 marks in the Primary School exams and was the top girl in the school. Her family who only have a few goats as livestock were unable to afford to send her to secondary school after she received admission in one of Samburu District’s best girls’ schools – Kisima High.

Book Donation to Lpus Leluai

Science books donated to kids at Lpus Primary School.

Thanks to the Desai Memorial Foundation, in Nairobi, Ewaso Lions was able to donate a large number of school text books that were lacking at the Lpus Leluai Primary School in Westgate Community Conservancy.  The headmaster, Johnson Lenasalia, met with all his teachers at the school and came up with a list of all the books that the growing number of children required.  With the final year examinations coming up, these books were urgently needed. The books were delivered recently and there are some happy children at Lpus Leluai now!

This is our second book donation to the school. Click here to read about the first donation.

Many thanks to the Desai Memorial Foundation for their continued support and donation....
