Sponsor a Girl
Each week, MGRC is forced to turn away girls who are in desperate need due to limited resources. There are no safety nets for Maasai girls, they find their way to MGRC because they have no other place to go. The direct costs for taking care of a girl is about $2,160 a year. Sponsors are asked to provide, as a minimum, the basic living, clothing and schooling costs of a child up until the age of 18.

MGRC provides a safe haven for some of the most at-risk girls in the world, coming from one of the poorest districts in Tanzania. Maasai girls face severe challenges to stay in school and build a better life. When Maasai girls attend secondary and post-secondary schools, they break their cycle of poverty and abuse. It means they can become independent with a vocational course of action or proceed onto higher education. Your donation will give a Maasai girl choices for the first time in her life.

THE NEED: Break the cycle of poverty and oppression. The Maasai tribe face starvation and desperation on a daily basis, this extreme poverty has led to an oppressive cultural norm for females – of all ages – in the tribe. These young girls are married off to much older men, who have multiple wives, in exchange for a one time payment. Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) make the girls more “valuable” while education does not. These child brides are forced to birth as many children as possible, regardless of their ability to care for them.

WHAT WE DO: Maasai Girls Rescue Center provides a safe and nurturing environment for the most at-risk Maasai girls who are orphaned and/or living in abusive conditions in Tanzania. MGRC adopts the girls and provides housing, food, education, and full access to medical care. They receive housing and critical life skills that can radically alter the course of their lives and the future culture of their tribe.
