Challenge

Today, an estimated 53% of girls are married before their 12th birthday in pastoralist communities in Northern Kenya. Girls are viewed as ''home keepers''and thus lack access to quality education due to the harmful practices inflicted upon them. This project aims to address this problem by providing 420 girls with opportunities to decide their future through providing them with quality education, shelter and psychosocial support.

Solution

Samburu Girls Foundation provides education, shelter and psychosocial support to all the rescued girls. Through psychosocial support, the girls are also reconciled back into to their communities and families.Family re-unification is a more sustainable approach for the rescued girls.

Long-Term Impact

The project will educate 420 girls allowing them to become agents of change in their communities and eventually the harmful practices will be curtailed. The community will be empowered to embrace girl child education allowing them to reduce cases of harmful practices like Child Marriage and Female Genital Mutilation.
