Osiligi is a UK charity, helping relieve poverty in the Maasai areas of Kenya. Not changing the culture and helping Kenya and Africa help itself are our key objectives.
We are a team of volunteers with no salaries or costs. Our guarantee is that 100% of monies we receive go to Kenya. Nothing is used for any UK expenses.
Osiligi – the Maasai word for ‘hope’.

Why was the charity started?
The charity was started to help the Osiligi Maasai Warriors’ community in Southern Kenya. Most of the Charities activities are in the 100 square miles around the Warriors’ community, but some, such as the pump repair project are across Kenya. The Warriors tour the UK yearly performing their songs and tribal ceremonies.
