The Maasai Girls Education Fund works on-the-ground with the Maasai community to overcome the economic, social, and cultural factors that prevent girls from getting an education. In partnership with the community, MGEF has developed a comprehensive strategy to get more girls enrolled in school and to keep them in school until they have the knowledge and skills to enter the workforce in Kenya.
The economic, cultural and physical factors that combine to deny education to Maasai girls in Kenya are numerous and, taken together, almost impossible for all but the most determined girls to overcome.
MGEF is empowering women by changing attitudes toward educating girls, female circumcision, and gender prejudices.
