Julius is a Maasai from Elerai. He has been an active volunteer with the Kesho Trust for a number of years hosting and working with international volunteers on our projects in Enguserosambu and at Kihembe. Most recently he served as the Field Coordinator for the indigenous knowledge mapping project in Enguserosambu led by Erik Val [see final report]. He is also a member of EMAYO and serves as their coordinator within the IKG project. In part, as a result of his experience with the Enguserosambu mapping project he is keen to pursue training in GIS. His courses began in November but he will also continue to support the IKG project during the course of his studies.
