Located in the Naboisho conservancy, Koiyaki Guiding School (KGS) provides local Maasai youth with an education in the tourism industry and conservation. KGS stands out as an exemplary institution in the Maasai Mara and has received several international accolades.
To date, KWT has facilitated the sponsorship of five female students at Koiyaki Guiding School. In order to promote cultural diversity in the school, KWT sourced these students from the greater Amboseli area, the Maasai Mara as well as Northern Kenya.
Through the training they obtain from KGS, individuals can gain employment and income to support their families, promote responsible guiding and tourism and become wildlife conservation advocates.
