It is not too late to help the Maasai! You may donate above with either PayPal or credit card. Here's what YOU can do to help this emerging village where children walk hours to go to school- if they are fortunate enough to have their parents' permission, can be spared from household duties, have a school uniform and can pay school fees.
A HUGE THANK YOU to all who helped make Chief Joseph and John ole Parsitau's 2017 visit a record-breaking success! We raised over $5000 for the village and are sponsoring many girls in boarding school to protect them from FGM and early marriage.
A very special, heartfelt thanks to our friends

And to the saviors of the young girls whose lives have been changed forever!
The draught continues. Hunger is still prevalent. We need to construct a well for clean water. And there are always more girls needing help to excape a deeply ingrained tradition of early marriage as an anecdote to family poverty.

Most get up very early for their long walk to school, study all day and make the long trek home with only some milk for breakfast. It is hard for them to concentrate after the physical exertion and long day with no lunch. Help us provide a simple hot lunch in the schools for these children.
