BeSomeone is offering runners the chance to not only run on the base of prestigious Kilimanjaro but also take part in what you are raising funds and help us construct the classroom for Namelok School.
The route passes through many small farms, villages, banana and coffee plantations and patches of forest, providing great excitement to the residents who give ample vocal support.The atmosphere in the stadium is electric with local bands playing, entertainment, crowds of local enthusiasts to cheer the runners, and lots of food and drink for sale.
Why is Namelok so special? Education has not been successful in many areas of Tanzania because the government schools do not teach in the tribes’ mother tongue. Here at Namelok, we ensure success by teaching in all three languages: the indigenous language of Maasai, the national language of Swahili and English. This equips our students with all the necessary tools to thrive. As well as catering to day students, some of the children enrolled at Namelok are considered orphaned and are provided with boarding, meals, guidance and security. While education is a priority for every child, the orphaned children are in dire need of a place to call home. BeSomeOne is proud that Namelok is the caring place that meets this basic need.
