Faith Supeet, Founder, BCL Foundation

The founder of the Beyond Cultural Limit Foundation, Ms. Faith Supeet, focuses on creating resilient and sustainable livelihoods within the Maasai community. Through her leadership, they have successfully developed community projects that have brought significant positive change to the community.

Water & Climate

The community’s water needs have been met beyond cultural limits, through various means. These include drilling, rainwater harvesting, and educating people on water conservation methods. The goal is to prepare for potential water scarcity and ensure easy access to water for the community.

Food Systems

As the Community-Based Organization (CBO), we prioritize promoting food security within our community. To achieve this, we are shifting from livestock methods to smarter agricultural practices that are adaptable to the effects of climate change. By doing so to address the issue of food shortage, we have introduced community gardens, which have resulted in increased food productivity. In addition to that, we have also introduced kitchen gardens to promote self-dependency and sustainability among women.

Community Uplifting

Our community has undergone training and education to become sustainable. Through these sessions, we have been able to make a significant impact, with a focus on utilizing traditional indigenous knowledge and skills to address climate change. This work has been a major priority for us.

Community gardens have brought tremendous benefits to individuals like Helen, Mary, and Isaac. Helen shares that the community garden has become a reliable source of food for her family, ensuring they no longer go to bed hungry at night. In the past, they only had cabbage as their staple vegetable because it was the only one available in the market, which they could only visit once a week. However, with the community garden, they have access to a variety of fresh vegetables, making their meals more nutritious and satisfying.


Mary adds that having a community garden has also introduced diversity in their meals. They can now enjoy different types of vegetables that are easily accessible within their community. Meanwhile, Isaac shares that the garden has increased his knowledge of agriculture, especially in a place with a harsh climate. He has learned a lot about the types of crops that can be grown in their area since the implementation of the community garden project.

“The community garden has been a great help to us all. It keeps us busy and in good physical shape, as we tend to the garden by removing weeds and watering it regularly. Not only does it produce fresh food, but it also benefits our health.” Caroline says.

“We have been able to grow several types of vegetables in our garden, which has saved us the trouble of going all the way to Kajiado to buy them. Although Kajiado is quite far away, we can now access fresh vegetables easily, including cabbages, sukuma wikis, and spinach, which are readily available in our community garden.” Leah narrates.
