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

Fundraiser Spotlight
Please support Hugh Illsley, 71, who will embark on an epic 24 mile Grand Canyon Rim-to-Rim hike June 1st to raise funds for Maasai Girls Rescue Center (MGRC). Hugh will leave from the North Rim, challenging personal limits as he decends 8,000 ft to the bottom of the canyon. After hours of knee-pounding hiking, he’ll reach the sandy banks of the Colorado River before starting the 7,000 ft ascent back out to the South Rim. He will complete the 24 mile hike in one day on behalf of MGRC!

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.

Give Today
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.
