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

tanzania maasai girls charity organization

Help build an ecoVillage
MGRC ecoVillage will include living quarters for 120 young girls, a pre-school, vocational training area, dining hall, volunteer living quarters, livestock barns and gardens for sustainable farming. ​We are not creating orphanages, we are creating a series of family homes where vulnerable, at-risk Maasai girls are loved and raised by Tanzanian ‘house mothers’. By forming family units we are able to recreate a community environment that is focused on nurturing, encouraging, educating, and raising the girls.

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.
