A BIG thank you from the beautiful people of Lemong'o, Kenya, Africa for your interest in this volunteer opportunity. We are looking for volunteers to help write grants to fund our work in the village of Lemong'o. We have TONS of content, photos, and data, but need experienced grant writing word wizards to up our game. We are passionate about our work in Lemong'o and yearn to have our written content match our commitment. If you have a heart for feeding children, providing free medical care, supporting teacher salaries and employing women in Africa, we warmly welcome you to our team. Many thanks (ashe oleng - Maasai language)!

About The Lemong'o Project

Mission Statement

Mission The Lemong’o Project is a charitable non-profit organization dedicated to empowering the Maasai people of Lemong’o in rural Kenya through nutrition, education, health support, and employment. Description The Lemong'o Project is a small but mighty (fewer than 10 Board members), all-volunteer nonprofit organization. Approximately 96% of all funds raised go directly to support the people of Lemong'o. We work collaboratively with the Manyatta Committee, our Board equivalent in Lemong'o. We strongly believe they should guide decision making because they represent the people of Lemong'o. Our goal is to provide the resources needed to create sustainability and empower the people of Lemong'o so that in the future they will no longer need this type of support.

Description

The Lemong’o Project began with Founder, Carolyn Tague's, life-long draw to Africa and her dream of helping the children there.
*Pay salaries for 3 teachers. By providing this support, school tuition is reduced making school accessible to more children. *Hold 2 free medical clinics each summer. We hire a local doctor, eye doctor, 2 nurses, and lab technician. Patients (all ages) receive free exams, medications, referrals as needed, and follow-up treatment. *Purchase, at fair trade prices, beaded handicrafts (jewelry, baskets, ornaments) made by the women of Lemong'o. The handicrafts are brought back to the United States and sold with 100% of the proceeds directly benefitting the people of Lemong'o.
