This foundation targets pastoralist communities which usually show a high degree of illiteracy and poverty. It was established in 2016 after recognizing the main issues of concern affecting the area of Merille town, Rendille tribe, but might in future be expanded to other pastoralist tribes in Northern Kenya. It aims to aid communities to develop in personal, social and economic aspects and abstain from  harmful practices in order to grant everybody, be it child or adult, a life respecting basic human rights and needs.
In order to achieve development effectively, we promote education, business and health, ultimately resulting in wealth, higher standard of living, more civilized thinking and increased economic ability. This is more self-sufficient than merely supplying communities with financial help or food.
We try to preserve culture as much as possible, as long as it is not contradictory to the core beliefs of the foundation.
