School is closed for 2013. A recent trip to Kipsing Academy revealed at least 9 girls needing sponsorship for school for 2014. The dormitories at Kipsing Academy are full of pastoralist girls. As long as they can stay in school they are relatively safe from FGM and Early Forced Mariage. Both practices are illegal in Kenya and school is mandatory. But pastoralist families often carry on their traditional beliefs in spite of Kenyan law. These girls have been in school and are known by the headmaster. He follows them after the holiday to ensure their return to school. Mary, Ntsawa, Sarah, Winnie, Francesca, Dela, Jukuliza, Leengo and Eliza are all in need of sponsors for 2014. It is $125.00 to sponsor a girl in the dormitory. These girls have at least one parent and that parent makes a contribution as well. The Catholic Church sponsors the dormitory, the $125.00 is a contribution towards this subsidized fee and the cost of money transfer. Consider the gift of education for a pastoralist girl in Kenya during this holiday season.
