Sekenani Community Hall
Sekenani does not have a space where the community can meet to discuss issues and meet with officials and visitors. This is a vital part of community life and without such a space many opportunities for education and training are also being lost. We have thus decided to build a centre on the plot of land next to the existing centre.
It will be a green building, powered by solar energy and will include a meeting/conference/training hall that can also be used for indoor sports; a performing stage – Sekenani is known for its dancing and singing prowess across the county and in national competitions; sports changing rooms; a small library; pre-school nursery; restaurant and kitchen; and toilet facilities, including for disabled visitors.
Plans have been drawn up with a cost estimate is 15 million Ksh.

Sekenani Schools Food Programme
Most of the children come from the local area. They face many challenges – from the traditions of Maasai culture, such as early marriages, to the total dependency on livestock keeping, pastoralism and tourism. Climate change, drought, famine and the seasonal nature of tourism means that there is no steady flow of funds to pay school fees.
The Sekenani Primary Bursary Fund aims to retain as many children in school as possible. Having children as Boarders also helps ensure that they complete their primary school education and go on to high school and university.
Students will be selected once a year by an independent committee, made up of senior staff and community representatives. Criteria include academic performance, commitment to learning, personal behaviour and family need.
