Community education officers developed propoor tourism projects through assisting women in bead making and providing a platform where they could sell directly to tourists. These officers worked in partnership with a local tourism operators and supported over a 100 Maasai women by providing assistance in sourcing materials, design, quality control and marketing assistance. In addition, more than 200 bee hives owned by local women, produced honey which was sold to surrounding tourist lodges. After observing and listening to community education officers about the challenges they face, I became involved in a project to assist with GIS data capture which included locations of maasai villages, population, livestock numbers, schools, clinics and trading centres. Tourist lodge and tented camp locations were also captured. This project enable officers to visualise, with the use of maps, and make decisions about where to establish clinics, build schools and identify tourist camps to work with.
