Ewaso School and Loisaba Nursery School are schools situated on the remote Koija Group Ranch in the North of Laikipia County. It provides education, both boarding and day, for 400 pastoralist children from ages 5 through 19 years old from the surrounding rangelands.
In this traditionally marginalized and remote area, the school provides a chance for children who have very little.

Candy and balloons are not on the needs list as they are harmful for the children and the environment for the following reasons:
• Few of the children benefiting from these projects have access to toothpaste, toothbrushes, or a dentist. The candy promotes cavities.
• The balloons once they become deflated are a choking hazard for local wildlife.
Instead of taking candy or balloons, use that space for additional requested supplies, as they are priceless.
