School Sponsorships for Kenyan Girls

Since 1998, a total of over 500 girls in Kenya are getting or have gotten an education thanks to generous BEADS sponsors! Learn more and join in a life-changing experience -- for both your sponsored girls and yourself.

Without an education

a Maasai girl will remain illiterate and unable to support herself or her family. She will probably be forced into marriage at age 15 to a much older man, and be his second or third wife. Starting in her teens, she will bear an average of 7 or more children.

With an education

a girl can have a career of her choosing, and she can improve her family's standard of living. She will likely be the sole wife of a man she chooses, and she will have far fewer children and be more likely to education them, both boys and girls.

Together we are changing lives -- one girl at a time.
