Outreach & Community
Mugie is working hard to drive sustainable development, getting the local community involved and invested in creating a healthy future for Kenya, and furthering rangeland management and wildlife conservation.
THE MUGIE SCHOOL
The Sukuta Mugie Primary School is a public/private institution and serves approximately 150 children from the Mugie community and surrounding area – it is a day school for Mugie staff dependents (and free of charge) and a boarding school for students coming from outside Mugie. It is one of the top performing schools in the region and brings students the opportunity for a comprehensive education – encompassing conservation, health, and life-skills, as well as a supportive and caring community to grow up in.
THE MOYO FOUNDATION
In collaboration with Mugie Conservancy, The Moyo Foundation seeks to further sustainable development and community engagement, working towards a brighter future through health, education, and conservation projects.
In collaboration with Ekorian and the Mugie Clinic, Moyo is working toward mobile clinics which will deliver much needed healthcare to remote communities. With a focus on women’s health and hygiene, these clinics will be fully outfitted with a supply of medicines as well as Mugie’s nurse who will provide women with information and consultations. Additionally, The Moyo Foundation sponsors several students through their education, two of whom are at the Mugie School. And Moyo is working to raise funds for a new cheetah collar, to replace the existing collar of which the batteries have died, and advocating for wildlife corridors and overpasses.

THE LAIKIPIA RABIES CAMPAIGN
Mugie is a supporting partner in the Laikipia Rabies Campaign, a program working to eradicate Rabies in Laikipia county, and recently helped to vaccinate 93 cats and dogs around Mugie.
THE MUGIE SACCO
We are dedicated to helping our neighbours develop sustainable farming methods and business practices. Mugie acts as the secretariat for the Mugie Sacco, a local co-operative (known in Kenya as a SACCO) set up by youth members of the nearby community. Having assisted in the set-up of this cooperative, we continue to mentor its members in business practices in order to encourage the growth of local economy.
