Human Rights for the Pastoralist Girl Child

May 31, 2013



MEET Elisa : Elisa is a new teen in her last year of primary school. Her mother died leaving her father with the four girls and three boys.  It is the Samburu tradition to perform FGM and marry girls young which ends their formal education.

With the help of sponsors, the father will allow his girls to receive education before marriage.  Elisa is in the top ten of her class.  Because of her sponsor, for the last three years, Elisa has been able to stay in school.  Her sponsor is forced to end her sponsorship at the end of 2013.  We trust that a donor will step forward and continue her sponsorship.
