Introduction / History

The Ilchamus are a Maa people living south and southeast of Lake Baringo, Kenya.


What Are Their Lives Like?

They are pastoralists who also engage in fishing in small boats made of balsam trees. They are eager to learn new things, seemingly eager to create a better life. It's a poor community and lacks most modern facilities. There are education lacks and many can only communicate in their local language. It's a very traditional and culturally bound society, hierarchical, and male-dominated.


What Are Their Beliefs?

The Ilchamus people have their own traditional religious practices. They are at the mercy of a spirit world that comes to steal and destroy.


What Are Their Needs?

The Ilchamus people need the chance to find the only Savior, the one who offers life to the full.
