RedTribe works in partnership with a remote and traditional Maasai community to bring hope for a better future by improving health, education, and alleviating poverty.
The Maasai are a semi-nomadic people rich in tradition and culture living across the borders of Kenya and Tanzania. They are in a time of great uncertainty and change as they are forced to adapt to settling in one place. As a result of a rapidly changing lifestyle and culture; the Maasai have become a marginalized community that suffers from increasing poverty, a lack of health care facilities and a good education.

Redtribe has focused on developing 3 key areas:
1. Maasai Academy was started by a few concerned parents and a caring Pastor in the community. He started teaching with little or no resources in the local church building. RedTribe has got behind this venture and the school has grown from 3 children and 1 teacher to 125 children with 8 teachers, 6 classrooms, a sports field and a daily feeding program.
2. RedTribe Beadwork was started with just one widow and a few beads. The project has grown to 20 marginalized Maasai women and a manager. With the profits generated, RedTribe is able to pay the salary of a female teacher in the Maasai academy as well as provide a sustainable income for the women and their families in the project.
3. Maasai Clinic partners with Starfish Clinic Project International (a UK based charity) with the aim of helping eliminate preventable illnesses and deaths by providing medical care and education. The clinic is run by Florence – a highly qualified nurse who has been trained to carry out a wide range of treatments from dentistry to midwifery,
