is a humanitarian concept and
also a charity organization (association), helping in education
of Maasai children in East Africa.
We are living in what is called
the era of information. E-solidarity tries to give a new dimension
to the word "information", a dimension more social and
more human than technical.
is the voice of the association
M.A.A. (Maasai Aid Association).
- it tries to connect worldwide,
the generosity and abundance of some ones with the distress and
the absence of the minimum vital for living of some others, such
as vulnerable children.
- it brings information at the
level of rural Maasai women aiming to break the wall of isolation
and ignorance in which some communities still live in and which
is the source of violation of Children and Women Rights (speaking
about FGM : Female Genital Mutilations, early forced marriages,
lack of primary education for child girls and so on).
