The Nashulai Conservancy as a Human Rights Incubator

This is a past event.

Nelson and Maggie Reiya from Kenya will give a talk about Nashulai Conservancy, the only community and wildlife conservancy in East Africa that is owned, directed and managed by the Maasai people and Elders. 

Nelson, the founder of Nashulai Conservancy, will speak about the connection between wild life, local culture, and ecology and how socially responsible tourism empowers the Maasai Community.

Maggie leads a project empowering girls through education and confronting problematic cultural practices such as FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and early marriage.
