Ol Tukai Lodge continuously identifies challenges faced by the local Maasai community in Amboseli and its neighbouring sub-counties. We work through Amrit Foundation, a charity organisation founded by the late Mr. Harbans Singh Amrit, who until his untimely death was the chairman of Ol Tukai Lodge, and the larger Manrik Group of Companies.
The non-operational local dispensary forces the residents to trek for miles on end to either Namanga or Kimana to seek medical attention. This has been a major concern in the area, and we bridge the gap by holding regular medical camps and drives assisted by Divinity Foundation to provide the elusive medical care.
We keep the dreams of children alive by improving the learning centres within these areas through the construction of infrastructure. We have single-handedly increased school attendance through the donation of school supplies and sanitary supplies.
It is unfortunate that the beautiful land of Amboseli, with the scenic view of Mount Kilimanjaro, is prone to prolonged droughts year in year out. The rocky terrains barely hold water long enough to farm subsistence produce. As such, we are always on hand to provide the residents with food supplies.
