Our connection with the Koyaki community goes beyond peaceful co-existence. We are practically involved in village life. Paya, our nearest village is the main beneficiary of our community projects. The Ol Seki tractor was put to good use dredging the dam before the rains to ensure it would fill to maximum capacity with rain water. Our trusty tractor also helped dig the foundations for new classrooms at the village school and carved out trenches for the pipes of the new water borehole.
Ol Seki guests are welcome in Paya village and the funds from these visits contribute to the education of village children. We also support local craftswomen who sell their wares to our guests, this in turn encourages the survival of indigenous skills such as weaving and carving. Revenue from the trade of souvenirs has enabled the women to buy donkeys to support them in their long journey to market at Nkoilale, bearing their goods. We also buy milk and meat from the local herdsmen to support their agricultural enterprise and feed our camp staff.
