THE STORY:

En mi primera visita a Kenia tuve la oportunidad de conocer el trabajo de Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust. De conocer a Luca y Antonella, de pasear y vivir junto a los maasai, de darme cuenta de lo desnaturalizados que estamos en esta parte del mundo. De lo acostumbrados que estamos en las ciudades a no ver el horizonte y lo miopes que nos hacen nuestras blackberrys. Para mi fue una experiencia única que reune todos esos componentes de los que hablaba anteriormente. MWCT trabaja, además, en una zona de belleza incomparable, junto a la población maasai local, con tres objetivos: ecología, salud y educación, siendo totalmente respetuosos con el entorno y la cultura original. Porque la ayuda debe hacerse desde el respeto y el amor, y eso es algo que Luca Belpietro sabe hacer y que transmite desde el primer momento que uno pone el pie en Campi Ya Kanzi.

In 1996, Luca Belpietro and Antonella Bonomi created the pioneer eco-tourism lodge, Campi ya Kanzi, in front of majestic Kiliamanjaro in the pristine Chyulu Hills ecosystem of Kenya. They began the business of Campi ya Kanzi not with personal financial gain in mind, but with the objective of using profits from sustainable tourism to protect and preserve the local ecosystem and to sustain the traditional culture of the Maasai people. They now manage 280,000 acres of Maasailand on behalf of and jointly with the Maasai people who own this land, known as Kuku Group Ranch. Realizing that they would need assistance in order to achieve and sustain their goals for environmental protection, in 2000, they created the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust (MWCT).
The mission of the Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust is to support the preservation of biodiversity within the Maasai tribal lands of East Africa by promoting conservation, education and health services within the Maasai community. The uniqueness of both equatorial Africa's grassland ecosystems and the storied culture of the Maasai people face a daunting challenge to survive and co-exist in a sustainable manner. Recognizing that the fate of both rests with the Maasai themselves, the MWCT raises awareness and financial support. Funds support a host of programs designed to conserve the legendary wildlife of the area and to encourage sustainable land practices to benefit the ecosystem, ultimately preserving the traditional Maasai way of life.

The Maasai Wilderness Conservation Trust operates in three sectors: Conservation, Education, and Health.
