Maasai Girls Rescue Center mission, to transform the lives of the most vulnerable, at-risk Maasai girls in Tanzania.

Maasai Girls Rescue Center mission, to transform the lives of the most vulnerable, at-risk Maasai girls in Tanzania.

CHANGING LIVES, ONE GIRL AT A TIME

Maasai Girls Rescue Center (MGRC) began with one man rescuing one girl. To date, MGRC has saved the lives of over 50 Maasai girls who were malnourished, diseased or injured.

HOW TO HELP

it-takes-a-village

MGRC ecoVillage
It takes a village...
Maasai Girls Rescue Center’s ecoVillage is founded on the premise that the only lasting way to help people is to teach them how to help themselves. Maasai girls who come to the Center are alone, struggling for survival, suffering physical and emotional trauma from endemic poverty and cultural mores.

maasai girls sponsorships

Child Sponsorship Program
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 one girl is about $2,160 a year. Sponsors are asked to cover the direct costs of the girl(s) until the age of 18.
