MGEF is a fantastic organization that provides young Maasai girls with the opportunity to attend school in Kenya. MGEF is blessed with a core of very dedicated, hard-working individuals, and with relatively low overhead costs, they are able to achieve impressive results. We receive regular updates from the young Maasai girl that we sponsor, and have watched her grow over the years. She often tells us about how meaningful the sponsorship of MGEF has been in her life, and we look forward to sponsoring more students in the future. This is a truly unique organization, and I highly encourage others to get involved!
