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 educate them, both boys and girls.
Together we are changing lives—one girl at a time. For more information or to select a girl to sponsor, contact Debby Rooney at BEADSofKenya@aol.com or by calling (US) 609-823-7701. You can also learn more by clicking below
