MCV Granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations
MCV was granted Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) in July 2016 for our humanitarian work in Maasai communities. MCV provides sustainable humanitarian programs in the area of water, education, cultural preservation, solar, and human rights advocacy for the survival and improvement of Maasai communities.
MCV core values align with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples (UNDRIP) and we develop Maasai-led programs to align with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) for its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. MCV works with the United Nations to provide direct feedback from Maasai land and to advocate for Maasai rights. MCV reports to the United Nations bodies through the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII).
