Maasai Girls Rescue Center (MGRC) is seeking Impact Investors to fund development of a series of projects within the ecoVillage in Karatu, Tanzania.
The ecoVillage consists of 10 ecoHomes for 120 girls and their house mothers, a 3-acre ecoFarm, a sports field, a multi-purpose building, a pre-school, a vocational training center, adminstration buildings, and 6 ecoLodges on a total of 15 acres. The ecoLodges will provide short-stay accommodation for visiting volunteers, school exchange programs and safari tourists. It is the economic linchpin, providing a sustainable income stream for the entire operation.
EcoFarm feeds village residents EcoFarming combines modern science and innovation with respect for nature and biodiversity. Our vision of sustainability and food security is one in which food is grown with health and safety first.
The ecoLodge introduces a new “impact tourism” sector to the region. It will generate income through fees charged to tourists. In addition to offering career and training opportunities for the girls, the ecoLodge will provide good-paying jobs and commerce for the community.
MGRC envisions the ecoVillage as a self-sustaining, entrepreneurial endeavor that breaks the cycle of poverty by giving people the tools to help themselves.
