The hopes, freedom and futures of Maasai girls are being robbed and sacrificed every day. And it needs to stop.

The hopes, freedom and futures of Maasai girls are being robbed and sacrificed every day. And it needs to stop. Every day, Maasai girls are forced into female genital mutilation (FGM) and child marriage. What does this mean for Maasai girls? It means they will likely have health issues resulting from FGM, which can range from potentially grave severe bleeding, to chronic infections and fatal difficulties in childbirth. It also means that 11- to 14-year-old Maasai girls will have to leave school, instead bearing children for their new husbands and dedicating themselves to their new home and family.

About Us

Coins for Change Coins for Change is a 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization committed to saving the lives and futures of poor, marginalized Maasai children in the Amboseli region of Kenya, by putting an end to female genital mutilation (FGM) and early marriage and providing the children with the education, resources and freedom to make a better future for themselves. Our main emphasis is on protecting Maasai girls who are being forced into female genital mutilation (FGM) and early marriage. Focusing solely on stopping these practices without addressing their root causes, however, only helps a child in the short run. It does nothing to address the underlying causes of the issue. The current reality is a vicious cycle that perpetuates itself generation after generation because of tradition, perceived gender roles and poverty.   SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave Real Lives.

In order to make a real impact and drive real change, Coins for Change focuses on programs that tackle the root causes of female genital mutilation (FGM) and early marriage.   SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave SaveSave Join us today and...
