Challenge

The maasai of Baringo commonly known as Ilchamus are an indigenous minority group. They have been victims of cattle rustling from the neighboring communities. Over the past few years, schools have been closed and education discontinued over months as the government struggles with issues of disarmament and security. The levels of poverty and illiteracy are high. Their livelihoods are threatened as bandits drive away herds of livestock leaving the victims wounded, windowed and orphaned.

Solution

The project will provide support for the orphaned children and address the issues of access to education in boarding facilities. In educating the girl, the project hopes that once they get training they will be able to provide for their families as well as form lobby groups that will raise community voices to the national decision makers with a view of holding government accountable to its citizens. By supporting each kid, households will have hope for a bright future. They will be mentored

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 15 girls through secondary education and provide training for another 15 girls in various relevant fields allowing them to raise out of poverty. Beyond the livestock targeted by bandits , they will have a different source of livelihood through employment and own business development. This project will provide equal opportunities to pastoralist girls to compete at equal terms as well as emphasis on the need for girl child education and mentorship at all levels.
