The ZARA Charity’s newest project aims at making a change to the lives of the Maasai women in Karatu. Whereas great improvements have been made in the education of Maasai men, the women are poorly lacking behind, due to their burden of a traditional inferior role within their community.

Therefore, Zara Charity wants to build a Maasai Women’s Vocational Training Educational Centre in the highlands of Karatu. Certain skills can help these women to rise above their restricted positions in society and to grant their family a better living by establishing their own business or getting employed. Eventually, they can realize their full potential and be empowered to pursue their own dreams and ideals.

To raise funds, Zara Charity is organizing the “Make a change:  Ngorongoro bicycle race 2010” which will take place on the 31st of October 2010 to finance this project. You can participate in this race, the participation fee is US$20.

There will be two routes, one will be for professionals and it will be on asphalted surfaces only. The other route will be for hobbyists; the route can be used with regular bicycles that tourists can rent from the Arusha Bicycle Club.   

The exact route description will be published on time, it will probably be from Makuyuni – Ngorongoro gate – Karatu town (distance around 40 km). Read more about it here.

ZARA Tours also offers a special package including participation in the race.
