Scholarships

Education is a proven and powerful way to dramatically improve the lives of women and girls who live in poverty. Consider giving a scholarship to send a Maasai girl to school:

  • High school O-level scholarships: $100 per month, or $1,200 per year (co-sponsorship at $600 per year is also possible)
  • High school A-level scholarships: $108 per month, or $1,300 per year (co-sponsorship at $650 per year is also possible)
  • Post-secondary scholarships: $192 per month, or $2,300 a year
  • Special projects: Any amount is welcome to support projects that enhance learning such as tutoring, infrastructure, technology, and more.

Safe Initiative

The Safe Initiative aims to address the root causes of disempowerment for Maasai girls, while also providing much needed immediate support to at-risk girls. The initiative provides:

  • Teacher training on the safety issues many students face, child protection measures, and student counseling techniques
  • Direct assistance to at-risk girls who face imminent danger of early marriage, genital cutting, and other forms of violence. The initiative provides housing, incidentals, counseling, formal education, and/or technical training to these girls.
