Community Development

  • Ol Pejeta's Community Development Programme

Through business enterprises and with the help of willing donors (both large and small) the Ol Pejeta Conservancy works to develop the funding necessary to pay for our wildlife conservation work, and to provide financial assistance to projects that assist the people living within our neighboring communities.

By the end of 2011, Ol Pejeta Conservancy had raised and dispersed over US$ 4 million in support of its community development programme. We work with local government and a variety of elected community representatives across the district to identify projects that qualify for assistance from the Ol Pejeta Conservancy. All projects supported are assessed on a case by case basis, and must contain some element of community contribution. We aim to concentrate on the following core areas: health, education, water, roads, provision of agriculture and livestock extension services and the development of community-based conservation tourism ventures. Based on regular socio-economic surveys, we aim to provide the support necessary to address real needs and to make a real difference to the lives of the people who live near by.
