What We Do

Scholarship Program

MGEF is working to educate Maasai women and the members of the community in which they live.  Our scholarships, awarded to Maasai girls, are continuous until each student has the knowledge and skills to enter the workforce in Kenya.  This is a long-term commitment to improve the literacy, health, and economic well-being of Maasai women, their families, and their communities.

Community Education

Throughout the year, we organize workshops to address the social customs and cultural beliefs that prevent girls from getting an education, sustain illiteracy, contribute to the spread of HIV, and perpetuate poverty among the Maasai. We also address the need for economic self-sufficiency among Maasai women, by leading business trainings. Our Community Education programming is facilitated entirely by Maasai educators, counselors, and health care professionals. Learn more.

 

Capacity Building

All of our work is designed in consultation with the Maasai community and implemented by the Maasai people. We support a community-based organization (CBO) in Kajiado, Kenya that administers all scholarships and workshops. This close working relationship with the community ensures that our work is culturally appropriate, and results in shared ownership and pride in our achievements. Learn more.
