Youth Training and Development
The young people formed an umbrella organization, the Loita Youth Association, which brought all the youth groups together. This gave them a new status next to that of the Council of Elders.
Notable achievements include :
- Spearheading formal education
- Exerting pressure on members who disgress from communal goals such as shool dropouts.
- Embarking on HIV/AIDS awareness campaigns.
Strategies & Approaches
ILIDP has developed youth leadership training and awareness creation that has enabled the youth to direct their energy, skills and courage to areas other than raiding.
By using the slogan “raid the earth” the ILIDP has managed to convince Maasai youth that cultivation, small-scale livestock trading enterprises and education give them better opportunities to realize their full potential.
