Doctors in the house (Make that camp!)
The eighth (8th!) free Aitong Medical Camp from October 29th to 31st focused on gynecology, pediatrics, dentistry, dermatology and general medicine. Kicheche Mara Camp and the Kicheche Community Trust contributed generously to this annual event allowing seven volunteered doctors to treat almost a thousand patients, 47% of them women.

Kicheche Community Trust champions four pillars EDUCATION, HEALTH, ENVIRONMENT & EMPOWERMENT
The numbers so far show the success of our CSR involvement:
The Kicheche Trust has been supporting the local Aitong (Masai Mara) health clinic for many years. We strongly believe that healthcare is a basic right. Donations made in the past include medicines, medical books, a maternity ward, a dental ward, a water pump, water tanks and upgrading of the existing solar system. We are continually asking for more donations to stock medicines, acquire reference books and other medical equipment as well as for patient transport facilities.
maa trust visit
The Kicheche Community Trust has over the years built and maintained several school class rooms. The Trust sponsored a primary school teacher and has funded his further education studies, donated thousands of school books and stationary and donated towards a school bus and funded 20 educational bursaries. In Laikipia, we take special care of those children affected by HIV/AIDS.
Each year the Kicheche Trust sponsors students at the Koiyaki guiding school and currently employs several graduates as guides and trainee guides.
We’ve run Clean Up campaigns in the small towns on the edge of the conservancies, raised money for mobile cattle bomas to reduce deforestation and promote holistic grazing. Tree planting and supporting a bee hive project are other actions currently underway.
