It’s a new academic semester in the United States and that means there’s a new and eager team from ASU work on the Maasai Automotive Education Centre! Let’s meet this new team:
The team is just over halfway done with the semester and has made progress towards making MAEC a reality. There have been two major focuses this semester: the mobile repair kit and a preliminary business plan. The mobile repair kit will be a set of tools that Maasai guides can purchase or rent to help them with repairs while out in the bush. This repair kit will allow us to impact the local community and start providing education resources on car maintenance before the physical auto shop gets put up! The second focus of the semester is the preliminary business plan. It’s important that we get a business plan sorted out so connections can be made, and funding can be found both in the United States and in Kenya!
All of the team members are excited to be a part of this project. Stay on the lookout for future blog posts to on the progress of MAEC!
My name is Miles Miller and my Maasai name is Ole Rakwa. I have been managing the development of the Maasai Automotive Education Centre for the past year and am back in Maasailand with my team for the next two months to work on the first stages of implementation and research for MAEC. It’s good to be back!
