Highlights & Milestones

Established 1995

Celebrating 28 Years!

LEAF has been connecting cultures, people and creating community since the idea of LEAF started to grow in 1995. In our fast moving world, we want to make sure to give gratitude, embrace and celebrate our successes. The life-changing moments are abundant, and we see people from so many places and walks impacted by their LEAF experience and passing the magic forward.

Mayani is a Maasai boy from longido Arusha. He went to boarding school at 6 years old and lost his Maasai language and tradition. Since joining the LEAF program, he has learned to sing Maasai songs, practiced the ‘jump’ tradition and wear Maasai shukas (traditional clothing). Mayani is extremely happy and is currently teaching other youth the culture.
