    Comments Off on The Osiligi Maasai Warriors

    The Osiligi Maasai Warriors arrive in Newcastle this September – a terrific tribal group all the way from southern Kenya.

    Their first major concert in the area will be held at Newcastle Cathedral on Thursday, 14 September where families can enjoy an educational show looking at the intriguing lives of the Maasai.

    The Warriors tour has gained the support of a small UK charity, Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in recent years. A new primary school, medical centre, water station and orphanage has been built with the funds. It’s a great cause and it’s a brilliant, educational journey to take the whole family on in Newcastle this autumn.

    The Warriors tour has also gained the support of a small UK charity – Osiligi Charity Projects – and, collectively, they have utterly transformed their local community in the last seven years. A new primary school has been built for 200 sponsored children; there is a new medical centre and orphanage; and a solar powered water station which serves the wider community.
