Education for girls is unbeatable

Beating all Odds to go to school
Beating all Odds to go to school

The Maasai community land is characterized by very hot weather condition.It is difficult to do farming in this region while it is classified as an arid area.The community keeps cattle as a way of livelihood.Women walk for over 10Kilometers in search for pasture and water . The girls are thirsty for education.They walk for long distance since the schools are very far from the homesteds.I met this girl Kalekye (name changed)  who told me that she has been walking  for 7 Kilometers everyday to school and back home .She skips lunch because lunch is not offered in school.Sometime she will go home and find the only meal in the house is a glass of milk .This is a typical story of many other children and girls from this community.The weather has not been any kind to this community and so they have to move from one place to another looking for pasture and water.In some cases the children are malnorished  due to lack of a balanced diet.This girl Kalekye  and many more have said they will beat all odds and finish schooling.

Your support to such girls has always made it possible for them to continue schooling.Let us continue to support them in all ways so that they can finish their education despite the challenge.

Your questions ,comments and input are always welcome.Engage us on info@hopeforteenagemothers.org

Hope for Vulnerable Community

Group of school girls from maasai community

The mentorship training for the arid land vulnerable girls have been an eye opener to the community of the Maasai people.Since our last report we have seen progressive change to the community.The feedback we have got from the parents of the  girls we are mentoring is that they want their girls to continue with school and go up to university level.

The cultural of this community is deeply rooted and girls are married off immediately after circumcision.This creates a very big risk to education for girls because it means an end to education.The Masaai girls are torn between keeping their cultural practices and miss out on education or skip some of the traditions and  be educated.We are working with the parents , teachers community leaders and the children in the mentorship.We  have role models  from this community that will help in the gradual transition of the mind set of the community.

We call to action to our donors and kind supporters to fundraise for this course .Partner with us to educate the girls who the Future of the world.Tell your friends about us .Come volunteer with us too during your free time and help make a difference.If we want to directly get involved you can get in touch with us through (info@hopeforteenagemothers.org).
