Great News! The Masai Mara Wildlife Conservancy Association (MMWCA) has been awarded a sizable grant from USAID to further its goals. As part of a collective effort with The Nature Conservancy, MMWCA is thrilled at the news.

“This will build and strengthen MMWCA capacity and strengthen conservancies’ governance across the Mara landscape,” said Daniel Sopia, Chairman, MMWCA. “We are grateful to Asilia Africa who raised the funds to kickstart the MMWCA, which has enabled the CEO to put her time to develop the USAID proposal.”
