Ngaren, the Museum of Humankind, "is a historic collaboration in Rift Valley, Kenya between paleoanthropologist Dr. Richard E. Leakey and architect Daniel Libeskind. This cutting edge site for education and research into our origin story—and future—will break ground in 2022, opening to the public in 2024...

"Ngaren draws upon decades of combined international experience. It is spearheaded by Dr. Richard E. Leakey, who has demonstrated an unparalleled life commitment to uncovering the scientific truth about human origins, and to the people of Kenya. Partnering with Leakey is celebrated architect Daniel Libeskind, known for designing landmark cultural buildings around the world.

"The building will be a net-zero facility. The museum will be a must-visit destination; a pilgrimage for all global travelers curious to know who we are, and the forces of change that brought us to this point. Your contributions on rabble will provide Ngaren seed funding for architectural design, interpretive and master planning, exhibition research and design, and the development of exclusive, cutting edge experiential educational content. This support is integral to Ngaren’s mission to shift paradigms by addressing critical issues facing the world today: climate change, sustainability, environmental awareness, understandings of race and ethnicity, extinction, technology, and more. Ngaren will make accessible complex scientific concepts by bringing them to life, incorporating technology, art, and exhibitions that educate and inform. Further, your contributions will help the Terra Conservation Initiative provide sustainable development support to surrounding communities, recognizing the museum’s dependence on the site’s history, present, and future."
