MANDO is a young, rapidly growing nonprofit NGO addressing huge challenges in the southern Rift Valley of Kenya. Its nomadic, pastoral Maasai people face such a severe drought that they are forced to become more agriculturally based. This means reliable water sources must be close to evolving communities.

It is looking to help with this adjustment and at the same time overcome root causes of poverty, introduce sustainable methods of subsistance, improve education and gender equality.

Its highly effective approach is based on encouraging and enabling the people in planning and decision making. Its Board is comprised of community members who volunteer time and effort. They pledge to maintain openness and accountability to constituents and partners. Reports and procedures available on request.

MANDO’s mission is to support education, focusing main efforts on Maasai communities: Eremit, Esonorua, Emboliei, Oltepesi, Enkereyian, Inyonyori, Kisames and Mosiro. MANDO works with local leaders and elders to improve water supplies, schools, health centers and women's and girls' status.


We are committed to ensuring that Maasai communities have access to high quality education, clean water and primary health care to successfully achieve their goals and potential. MANDO tackles the root causes of poverty and inequality with the goal of creating a new economically empowered, ethical generation.
