HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED

We welcome you to join us by getting involved in any of the following activities:

 

SMBURU MARALAL INTERNATIONAL CAMEL DERBY
You can get involved as a participant by booking to compete in any event such as Amateur Camel race, Triathlon Individual race, Triathlon Team race, Bicycle races, ½ marathon or road race. Too, you can sponsor any event/activity like the races mentioned. It doesn’t have to be enormous but one can even donate a trophy, cash prize for winners which ranges between US$6-500. Too, we are looking for sponsors to assist in making the Derby venue better. We need to fence the ‘holding’ ground for camels at a cost of 4125, erect an open shade for orienting participants at a cost of US$1750. Pastoralists from as far as 200 miles bring their camels for competitions during the event. The cost of their upkeep   during the event is usually met by the organizers of the event. Too, during the Derby, pastoralists are trained by qualified vet officers on camel husbandry as they inspect their health. You may get involved in this too. Any amount of donation will be appreciated.

 

CULTURAL EXCHANGE
We welcome visitors to learn with us. You may be a student, or free-lancer, a ‘retired’ person from regular employment, or on sabbatical leave. Welcome.  We will discuss logistics for up-keep and accommodation with the particular individual.

 

VOLUNTEER
You can volunteer locally/physically or virtually in marketing the Derby or by getting personally involved in organizing. You can too, volunteer in community development/welfare activities like water, health, nutrition, education, environment and other projects.

 

COMMUNITY WELFARE PROGRAM
Samburu nomadic pastoralists face many challenges today that impair their traditional life coping mechanisms due to severe droughts that kill their livestock.  School enrolment is still low at about 44%, school drop-out rate high at 58%, illiteracy levels high at about 88%, safe water access low at 13%, access to sanitation low at 16% and poverty rates extremely high at 88%. According to your area and ‘call’, the list of opportunities for your participation is long. You can sponsor a needy student once or for longer periods to complete high school.
