EJOK is a joint initiative amongst three groups of people:

  1. the Turkana community who live around the villages of Louwae, Locher Akwan and Nakoret along the Kerio River Valley
  2. Kenyan and international scientists carrying out research in the area (IN-AFRICA Project, Turkana Human Biology Project)
  3. a group of University students from the UK and other countries who have volunteered to help build a classroom next August.

Scientific research and community projects in Turkana are supported by theĀ Turkana Basin Institute.
