I photographed this gathering of #Samburu girls, #women, #warriors and #elders, described to me by one individual as the Samburu equivalent of a #community ball. Where the guys were eyeing up the girls and the excitement - electric. These girls (pictured) seemed coy and slightly reticent.

It’s early morning and just as the sun starts to rise the elephants start to grumble and call to their keepers. The elephants are always more than ready to be let out of their stables. Just like toddlers they are excited about the events a brand new day holds! When out in the wild the calves enjoy chasing birds, monkeys and other small mammals in play... no wonder they can’t wait to start the day! We hope you all have a wonderful day today too ...

Flashback to the time about a year ago when Boris the Elephant decided that that particular brush right outside that particular room @sararacamp i.e. mine was the only one he would dine on. All afternoon. I didn’t mind. I’ve dined on that story for quite a while 💞🐘💞

My heart bleeds for my country Kenya 😭😭😭❗️ When we were just beginning to enjoy tourism again, when the westgate building was just picking up in business, when buildings were beginning to trust its customers and having them walk in without being scanned, when we could probably walk around unbothered,...it had to happen in one of our big best hotels 😭😭😭😭 Kenya is a country with very strong religious roots.
If the Gods we worship can ever hear us, then I pray the time to be now.
May God help all those Kenyans and foreigners stuck in those buildings. Be their strength and give them hope and reminder that they have to fight for this through body and soul.
Amen God Amen 😭😭😭

The incredible trunk. 44,000 muscles and a multitool like none other. Look at it go! From the field at Namunyak Wildlife Sanctuary in northern Kenya. Elephants here are vital to clearing the land so that grasses can grow, feeding bulk grazers, wild ones like onyx, buffalo, endangered Grevy’s zebras, eland, as well as the beloved, all important cattle owned by the Samburu people. This is one of the reasons the Samburu people have become such dedicated protectors of elephants in the area.

As the New Year begins, so does a new chapter for The KURA Project. First of all, we have changed our name to better reflect our mission and are now called Kenya Drylands Education Fund or KDEF.

Along with our new name, we are proud to announce the appointment of our new Kenya Country Director, Ahmed Kura. A native of northern Kenya, he brings over 10 years of experience in sustainable development in the arid lands of Africa. He champions the cause of children in Kenya who long for the opportunity to have an education beyond primary school but come from families too poor to afford the school fees. Ahmed himself was in the same position after his mother died and he was forced to drop out of school. Fortunately his brother-in-law was able to find a sponsor in the US who paid for Kura’s education through high school. Kura feels a huge sense of gratitude for this life-changing gift. He is convinced that education is the key to bringing positive and lasting change to Kenya and he wants to give the same gift of an education to children in need in northern Kenya as he was fortunate enough to receive himself. So strong is his desire to give back, that Kura has dedicated his own career, first as co-founder of the BOMA Project and now as Kenya Country Director for KDEF, to finding sponsors for as many students in northern Kenya as he possibly can. In addition he personally mentors these students and their parents in order to support these promising young people as fully as possible while they are in school. In recognition of his extraordinary efforts, the Aspen Institute named him as a 2018 New Voices Fellow.

Kura resides in Nanyuki, Kenya with his wife and two children. He has recently opened a KDEF office in Ubi Plaza in Nanyuki. We are thrilled to welcome Kura and look forward to much success in improving educational opportunities for students in northern Kenya.

El increíble tronco. 44,000 músculos y una multiherramienta como ninguna otra. ¡Míralo, vamos! Desde el campo en Namunyak Wildlife Sanctuary en el norte de Kenia. Los elefantes aquí son vitales para despejar la tierra para que puedan crecer los pastos, alimentar a los pastores a granel, a los salvajes como el ónix, al búfalo, a las cebras de Grevy en peligro de extinción, a Eland, así como al amado, todo el ganado importante propiedad de la gente de Samburu. Esta es una de las razones por las que la gente de Samburu se ha convertido en un protector tan dedicado de los elefantes en el área.
