The Maasai aren't giving back the money they've received, said Phyllis Eckelmeyer, chairwoman of the Maasai Cultural Exchange Project and the tribe's American liaison.
"They want to give back," Eckelmeyer
The Doylestown community has donated more than $90,000 to the Maasai, which they have used to have three wells drilled and send about 50 women and children to school, Eckelmeyer
Since local children have been involved in the fundraising efforts, the Maasai wanted to give back to the children, Eckelmeyer
said.And they thought donating to the castle renovation and expansion project would be the best way.
"It's a fairy land - a thing that all children want to have.It's something children can dream about," Eckelmeyer
