Please Help Educate a Young Maasai Girl in 2015

Please consider supporting the Education, Leadership and Rights Training for Indigenous Girls in East Africa, now in its fifth year, which helps to educate Maasai young women from Kenya and Tanzania and provide leadership training and mentoring so that they can become advocates and leaders of women and Indigenous Peoples.  All of our participants have graduated from high school and are now in higher education. They are currently studying a wide range of subjects from women's studies to environmental preservation and journalism. 
The program was created in 2008 by Tribal Link with three indigenous organization partners – SIMOO, IIN and PAICODEO – and US-based NGO Brighter Green, to support a small cohort of girls from the beginning of high school through their university graduation. The intent of the program is to invest deeply in a small number of girls who have exhibited great potential, but whose progress has been impeded by their community’s economic condition. Access to education in the region is rare; less than 10% of the general population receives a high school degree. For Indigenous girls in the area, the rate is even more startling: less than 1% of Maasai girls finish high school.

As we continue to nurture these young leaders, we also encourage you to make a donation to help support the increasing costs of higher education.

☐    $250 ­– Provide transportation and books for one girl for a full year

☐    $500 – Provide room and board for one girl for a full year

☐ $1,000 – Provide tuition for one girl for a full year

☐ $1,500 – Provide tuition for one girl for a full year and participation in human rights training

☐ $2,000 – Support one girl for a full year, including tuition, room and board, books, travel, and participation in the human rights training
