A New School Year Begins


It is already September, and our partners at the Indigenous Information Network (IIN) in Kenya are busy preparing for the new school year. The Nanyori Shelter Network, a group of six shelters for young girls that also serve as accredited high schools, is ready to receive 50 new students this year!
These students, the majority of whom have escaped early forced marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM), will benefit from free schooling, shelter, support, vocational training, and health and human rights education. Through education, the IIN aims to end the cycle of poverty, gender inequality, and human rights abuses for Indigenous women and girls in Kenya.
