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.

These child brides are forced to birth as many children as possible, regardless of their ability to care for them.
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 the Longido District of 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.
