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.

In reading the letters written by young women who have been given the opportunity to achieve a high school education through their scholarship program. It raises their standing in society to be worthy individuals capable of many things.
