Educating women in Kenya is vastly important to the continued success of this country. Educate a woman and you educate her children, her village, and her countrymen. It helps put an end to early marriage, FGM, and the advancement of AIDS in a society with enough other problems to be concerned about. This group is doing a fabulous job on all fronts working not just for the people of Kenya but WITH the people of Kenya.
