Supporting Maasai girls

Tanzania is the land of the famous Maasai tribe. The Maasai are known for their traditional way of life, language and their beautiful jewellery and clothing. But also female genital mutilation, child marriages and the use of traditional midwives. We see it as our obligation to give support to the Maasai community. Therefore Shemeji Safari donates a part of the profit to help Maasai women and girls. With the support of the Maasai women and girls we support 'our sisters', therefore we have named our company Shemeji which means sister in law.
