Support our girls and women empowerment work in the grassroots in Kenya especially in the Maasai community. We aim to offer educational support to young girls, FGM survivors and to empower rural women economically to improve their lives! Giving a girl a chance to go to school and escape FGM and forced marriage is investing in her future and that of her entire family and community! Funds raised through this project will go towards a rural primary school (Moi Eor-Enkitok Primary school) near the Mara. Funds will be used to support girls education, sanitary towels, books, uniforms, equipment and other needs as identified by the school and the community in the area. The school and the community have identified key issues affecting girls to be FGM, teenage pregnancies (Narok county is leading in the whole country at 40%) and forced marriage. If girls are kept in school then the chances of them being subjected to FGM, forced marriage and sexual abuse are reduced thus giving them a chance to progress to higher levels of education. The school reports that girls enrolled at the boarding section do better in their school work.
We have been promised by a kind (anonymous) donor that if we raise £5,000 they will match it with £5,000. So, every little helps!
HELP US TO EMPOWER THESE GIRLS THROUGH CHOICE AND VOICE!
Many thanks for your generosity!
