Who we are


“Help for the Massai” is a small, private organization that is aimed at supporting various projects among the Massai tribe in Northern Tanzania. “Help for the Massai” was founded in 1997. The organization has a core of about 20 members and a larger base of donors and friends, without which the ongoing financial support in Tanzania wouldn’t be possible. The organization is headed by Jan-Philipp Strelow from Ascheberg, Germany. The office work in Germany is done by part-time employees or volunteers. In this way we can keep the overhead costs down and guarantee that the donations flow into the projects for which the money has been donated. Two times a year there is a board meeting, which is, upon request, open for guests. The actual work in Tanzania is carried out by Angelika Wohlenberg, Elisabeth Merz and Sarah and Dirk Frykowski.

At this time there are two main centers in Tanzania:

Kwa Mrefu / Arusha
In March, 2008 “Help for the Massai” moved into our boarding school “Little Africa” on the outskirts of Arusha. With the generous help of donors an office was erected. In 2011 a guest house was built next to the entrance gate. Each Tuesday and Thursday the house is open for visitation and those seeking help can present their requests for assistance. 
The main work of “Help for the Massai” is centered in a small village about 280km north of Arusha in the middle of the Massai grasslands. It is from here that mobile clinics are planned and carried out. “Help for the Massai”  works closely with the Lutheran Church and supports local, indigenous missionaries.  In 2005 a new elementary school was founded, the “Naserian English Medium Primary School”. In the meantime, over 230 pupils attend this school.
