Challenge

Almost all Daasanach girls and young women in Northern Kenya are dealing with various issues related to being a tribal minority, women's empowerment rights, FGM and early marriages, to name a few. They are among the most vulnerable of Kenya's population: cultural barriers, religious and tribal customs, extreme poverty, prejudice and geographically remote homes, all contributing to the very low rates of school enrollments for these girls! Education for a girl is virtually impossible.

Solution

With this funding we will give more girls and young women the opportunity to access education, provide them with a different outlook on what their lives may have to offer for them, and protect them from FGM and early marriages. This will open up an opportunity, that otherwise would remain inaccessible and impossible.

Long-Term Impact

This project aims at giving young girls from disadvantaged & very poverty stricken backgrounds a right to education, empower them and giving them an opportunity to reach to their full potentials and make an impact on the Daasanach community.
