Read all of Maasai Girls Rescue Center's news, reports and publications. Our results and financials are published transparently in our Annual Report, so you’ll always know how your donations are helping.
Generous people around the world (with the US being the largest donor) provide billions in aid to countries and causes in Sub-Saharan Africa. Much of that aid fails to effectively address long-term problems, and in many cases creates negative unintended consequences. What’s needed is new thinking, and a new focus on smaller, local aid to create selfsustaining communities and economies that will move members out of poverty and toward independence.
MGRC began with one man saving one girl. Maasai Girls Rescue Center has saved the lives of over 50 Maasai girls who were malnourished, diseased or injured.
Rick Morro, founder of Maasai Girls Rescue
Center (MGRC), first came to Tanzania on a church mission trip in 2012. Struck by the severe poverty, he felt called to help the Maasai tribe. In 2013, he permanently relocated to Tanzania.
2020 was a year of significant progress, change and hope for MGRC. Our girls have overcome many challenges in their lives and education. They are doing remarkably well. Truly a combined effort between them, their teachers, house mothers and tutors. We believe this is their best path for a brighter future.
We solidified our Tanzanian organization as an independent, fully registered, tax exempt Tanzanian International NGO with an international board. By adding the appropriate structure and staff, we are now a licensed Children's Home.
