In 2015, we learned that the girls of the village we had visited were routinely cut and traded for cows as "child brides." We opened a dialogue with the local chief began brainstorming with him. He found 5 families willing to break tradition, by sending their girls to school, instead of marriage. When those five (below) came home on their 1st break, every girl in the village wanted to go school! That was the END of female cutting, and BEGINNING of the our fund
Please join our on-going effort to free girls from harm, and up-lift a community!

NO MORE CHILD MARRIAGE, NO MORE UNNECESSARY SUFFERING
and EVERYBODY WINS!
According to World Bank and United Nations studies, educating girls is the single best way to up-lift communities and end severe poverty.
Today we sponsor 48 vulnerable girls from Amboseli Kenya.
None of them will ever be traded for cows and forced into polygamous marriages.
Instead, they'll be able to count and calculate. They'll be about to speak, read, and write in the languages of Kenya (English and Swahili) as well as their native "Maa" language.
As students, they will be respected as individuals as they grow...
