As you know, we believe in the fundamental right of access to education, and we support this belief through leading educational projects in developing nations via partnership and cooperation with local leaders that support community driven empowerment.
Currently we are cooperating with this Maasai village in Kenya. We want this access to school to be universal for all the children. However, as a part of the cultural norms, it is the girls who fetch water for daily life, and therefore often cannot attend school, and funds go to boys. We will divide the money out equally, as well as support small business ventures of the women in the villages.
Education is a leading factor in social and economic development, particularly for women and young girls and the well and school will allow the village new opportunities for social, economic and health well being.
