Vision and Mission

Our VISION A world in which every Maasai child has the freedom and opportunity to create a better future for themselves.   Our MISSION To rescue poor, marginalized Maasai children in Amboseli, 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 APPROACH We are committed to putting an end to female genital mutilation (FGM) and early marriage, but understand that we must work with the Maasai community to effect lasting change. We therefore collaborate closely with the Maasai to generate solutions that are impactful in the short term and create lasting positive change in the long term. We encourage them to preserve their culture and their traditions, but to see the harm in practices like female genital mutilation (FGM) and early marriage, and the social and economic benefits of abandoning them.
