Guided by the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Maasai Water Project works to protect the basic human rights to Health, Education, Culture & Community by bringing sustainable safe water solutions and primary educational advancement to tribal communities living in remote parts of East Africa.
The human right to water is indispensable for leading a life in human dignity. It is a prerequisite for the realization of other human rights. Today, about 1.5 million Maasai people are left on earth. All of them live in Sub-Saharan Africa where less than half the population has access to safe water. Many Maasai people are battling water scarcity, struggling to gain access to any water source at all. The limited access to this vital human right is inflicting great damage on the Maasai’s other human rights to health, education, culture & community.
