"Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from Him."
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 $1,560 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.
My husband and I went on a 12 day safari in Tanzania at the end of October/beginning of November. While there we drove through Maasai lands and learned about the Maasai culture. This experience compelled me to come home and look for a way to help Maasai females. I found your website. The direct care and education you provide for the girls is exactly the type of help I want to support. Thank you so much for your work.

We first learned of MGRC from my friend, Joyce. We were really moved by the story of Rick’s efforts. We started by sponsoring a girl last year, and are now going to sponsor an additional girl this year. Rick, we are in awe of all you have done and all of the girls lives you are changing for the better!

Joyce and I are the proud sponsors of multiple girls. Rick is truly making a difference in these girls lives that would otherwise suffer or die. When considering all the costs of responsibly raising a girl with an education, Rick has done an outstanding job with very little resources. I have known Rick for years and trust that 100 percent of the money I donate will be put towards raising these girls.
