Touch Africa Adventures focuses on some of the poorest communities, such as the Maasai of Northern Tanzania. Their only source of income is their cattle and they are constantly seeking new grazing areas for it. As droughts are becoming more common because of global warming, their grazing areas are slowly diminishing and in turn their livelihood is in danger. Often times education, employment as well as basic services are also lacking in their areas.
Touch Africa Adventures started Asilia project, which is a division of the Asilia Maasai project, a non-governmental and non-profit organization that runs under the management of Maasai villagers through their representatives. The project started in 2010 by Samuel Tutunyo who was born and raised in the area. Samuel initiated this project for the benefit of the Maasai as he witnessed the difficulties his community was facing.
Asilia project is now working on helping these villages and we hope that you can work with us. We are grateful for any help we can get, even if it’s just ideas. Please email us for more details about these projects so we can provide you with further information.
The only source of income for the women here is their ability to make beautiful traditional beaded jewelry. Our goal is to help them by setting up a work shop and small store, where they can create and sell their beadwork. Thire income will help their families and in turn their communities.
Assist with building the workshop. Assistance with jewelry making supplies purchase. Help with business development and marketing. Monetary donation towards the project Spread the word
Our ambitious goal is to build a school in Mfereji to provide education, hope and a better future for our children. The first step is building a primary school in Mfereji and once this has been accomplished, continue building and developing education opportunities in other Maasai villages.
This is an ongoing process that requires a lot of resources and hard work. Currently there is only one school in the Mfereji area, but this is hard to get to for most as it is about four hours walking distance. We feel that this is too long to walk for children as young as eight years old and younger. We also believe that even if they made it, they would be too tired or hungry to take in any knowledge.
At the moment we have started schooling children under a tree near the village. To date there are twenty-four children attending, but numbers are increasing day by day.

Kilimanjaro trekking Marangu Route
The Marangu route is one of the most popular routes to the summit of Kilimanjaro. This could partly be as a result of the fact that the Marangu is the least expensive route, but more so, perhaps the fact that it is possible to do the Marangu route in 5 days, thereby getting to the summit one day earlier.
Lake Eyasi & Ngorongoro Crater
This cultural experience is one of the most sensitive cultural encounters available in the world today. The essence of Hadzabe & Maasai culture can be summed up in one word: Harmony.
They live in harmony with each other, nature and themselves.
