And we need your help, $10 feeds a girl for one week. Your contribution towards our sustainability projects goes directly to providing healthy, balanced meals for our 40+ Maasai girls, and helps sustain our food sources – dairy cows, goats, chickens, and a vegetable garden.
We operate entirely off public donations, angel donors, and volunteers.
Maasai Girls Rescue Center provides a safe haven for the most at-risk Maasai girls who are orphaned, fleeing from forced child-marriages, FGM, 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.
While we have made some great strides with our sustainability projects, two full-time live-in cooks and a modest weekly grocery budget, we still have a lot to accomplish. With your donation, we’re one step closer to caring for 100 at-risk Maasai girls.
Thank you for your kindness, support, and generosity. Together, we can directly and positively impact the lives of the girls at Maasai Girls Rescue Center.

Our Sustainability and Ongoing Projects
MGRC currently rents the facilities at LOOCIP. Our goal is to acquire land of our own so we can build newer facilities and continue to develop sustainability projects.
This has been difficult to sustain given the climate and limited access to water. We hope to continue to grow vegetables for the girls’ meals and fodder for livestock, instead of driving 2 hours across uninhabitable land (no roads) to the nearest market.
Goats for Christmas
2018 holiday fundraiser. 100 goats were donated, providing meat and breeding opportunities for extra income that helps cover operational costs. Our girls learn how to take care for the goats and business skills – empowering them to improve their quality of life as an adult.
3 cows were purchased with campaign donations. Our dairy cows produce several liters of milk a day for the girls’ meals. The girls are taught how to milk and care for the cows which will help them create sustainable livelihoods as adults.
As more girls arrive at MGRC and grow up, monthly donations help with the purchase of necessary school supplies and uniforms for the girls’ ongoing education and training.
