Cultural Leadership

The SORALO landscape is one of the last remaining strongholds of Maasai culture in Kenya. SORALO recognises the critical importance of the Maasai cultural values in enabling continued co-existence of people and wildlife within the landscape and we actively promote traditional knowledge, values and culture in ways that reinforce those values and assist their perpetuation in the face of social change.

Aside from the active inclusion of traditional knowledge in all our programmes, we are also pioneering a Pastoral Conservation Leadership course aimed at supporting local community members become conservation champions. This course begins within the local wildlife clubs at the local schools, where we have tailor-made a culturally sensitive wildlife clubs lesson guide.
