Plant One Tree, Save The Ngorongoro Crater, Help Animals

Ebeneza Maasai Children Center understand that, trees prevent soil erosion, are pretty vital in maintaining and regulating most water cycles, and help check global warming by using carbon dioxide in photosynthesis.

  • Trees Provide Habitat for Wildlife, It is only natural that wherever trees are planted, wildlife and other plants are sure to follow.
  • Trees provide shelter and food for a variety of birds and animals.
  • Enhancing growth diversity, trees create an environment that allows the growth of plants that otherwise would not be there.
  • Trees also provide shade, reduce water and air temperatures and contribute to the overall health of aquatic ecosystems by providing habitat, shelter and food for aquatic species.
Ebeneza Maasai Children Center is inviting people from across the world visiting the Ngorongoro Crater to come at the center and plant one tree, save the Ngorongoro Crater and help animals.

Maasai Warriors Culture in Tanzania

Maasai society is firmly patriarchal in nature, with elder Maasai men sometimes joined by retired elders, determining most major matters for the Maasai tribes. The Maasai people are monotheistic, and their God is named Engai or Enkai.

For Maasai people living a traditional way of life, the end of life is virtually without a formal funeral ceremony, and the dead are left out in the fields for scavengers. Burial has in the past been reserved for great chiefs only, since it is believed by the Maasai that burial is harmful to the soil.

Maasai Family Culture in Tanzania

Traditional Maasai people's lifestyle concentrates on their cattle which make up the primary source of food. Amongst the Maasai and several other African ethnic groups, the measure of a man's wealth is in terms of children and cattle.

A man who has plenty cattle but not many children is considered to be poor and vice versa. A Maasai myth says that God afforded them all the cattle on earth, resulting in the belief that rustling from other tribes is a matter of claiming what is rightfully theirs.
