Dini and Seiboku were rescued in February of 2011. Their sponsors learned about the change in management and the ongoing insecurity in Isiolo. They both desired to have the girls moved to another Children's Home out of the area of unrest. What should have been a simple move, turned out to be a long drawn out legal process. BUT in the end we emerged with the two girls. At age 12 they were taking what was only their second ride in a vehicle! The drive was long but they were excited! It is wonderful to see the sense of wonder and excitement as these girls learn and grow together. They spotted two British women in uniform at one of our "refreshment stops". Learning they were in the British Army was a novelty for them.- Women can do anything. Thank you Global Giving donors. It is only with your assistance that Pastoralist Girl's lives can be changed. They can learn to read, write and compute, they can expand their horizons and CHOOSE if, when and whom to marry. They can grow and appreciate their pastoralist culture and CHOOSE the lifestyle they desire. For Dini and Seiboku, they will begin their new school on Tuesday April 3 and start yet another adventure in their lives.
