Location and general information
Maasai Mara is an ecosystem of wildlife conservation and is home to several conservancies hosting both humans and wildlife. Like most children, the children within the conservancies love to engage in sports especially football during their leisure time. However, being a remote area, there is a lack of adequate facilities despite having access to public land in schools which could be used to construct a conducive football pitch that will enable children to play and have fun. During the sessions, community mobilizers and local rangers will be invited to raise awareness on wildlife conservation to both the players and spectators.
We will enhance wildlife conservation by organizing football activities integrated with sessions of creating awareness about the importance of wildlife conservation. Further, in collaboration with other local partners, we will support friendly matches for schools within the wildlife conservancies and work with community mobilizers and local rangers to share information on wildlife conservation.
The main objective of the project is to use football as a fun activity for children to learn more about wildlife conservation. Through football, we will create awareness about wildlife conservation and its importance thus encouraging children to become future wildlife conservationists.
- Working with game rangers to sensitize the children on the importance of wildlife conservation during football-friendly matches.

By the end of this project, it is expected that 1,300 children will have access to a good football pitch and football kits. Within the project implementation, we involve a series of sensitization sessions that will bring positive impact to both the children of Ngosuani Primary School and the Ngosuani Community towards embracing wildlife conservation thus resulting in a future generation of wildlife conservationists.
