Olivia Palermo is this year’s ambassador of The Maasai Project. The New York-based blogger, model and international fashion authority, recently travelled to Kenya to experience the project first hand. There, Olivia exchanged experiences with the Maasai women; they showed her how they do their embroidery work, explained how much they believed in this project, and told her about their lives in Africa. Olivia went to see the school where children are taught maths, languages, geography, as well as the history, culture and customs of the Maasai tribe, which, according to the UN, is one of the world’s most endangered tribes.
For a few days Olivia Palermo was an authentic Maasai girl and toured the African Savannah in the sandals from this special Pikolinos collection.
