Education, education, education. This is the ultimate answer to improving any life situation. Through the efforts of MSEF an affordable outreach has been made possible. An outreach that not only changes one life without a doubt, but definitely potentially a village. We are sponsoring a young woman to receive her Bachelors Degree in Education. She will return to her village and benefit many many people. Her return brings more than education - it brings a role model and hope. This affordable reach out is only possible because others dream. We are hoping to see this work only grow and grow through sponsorships and support. We are a small part of the dream.

Change the world one educated child after the other. MOST IMPORTANTLY remove the stigma attached to girls being educated. Open up the villages to possibilities, not the fears. Educate so people can participate in making their life better. Ownership

I first became familar with the Maasai Girls Education Fund through my work in women's international development. I remember working with Barbara Lee Shaw, MGEF's President, to communicate the story of Simantoi Kilama, an MGEF graduate who is now earning a living as a nurse due to MGEF's support. Hearing Simantoi explain how she was using her income to buy shoes, supplies, and school uniforms for her family and children in her community made me realize just how impactful MGEF's work is: by investing in girls' education, MGEF is having a ripple effect on Maasai communities. It is improving the lives of far more than those of the graduates themselves. In addition to being such an impactful organization, MGEF enjoys the leadership of Barbara Lee Shaw, a dynamic and effective organizer and manager. Throughout my time volunteering, I've been continually amazed by Barbara's drive and creativity.

I've been particular impressed by MGEFG's approach to overcoming obstacles, which is both practical and idealistic: MGEF works with community members to craft programs that merge cultural sensitivity with its mission of educating Maasai women.

It is indeed a pleasure to write a review for Maasai Girls Education Fund. With over 35 years of professional and volunteer work with international organizations, I rank MGEF at the very top. The leadership is passionately committed to improving the lives of young women in the Maasai community which has a more limited access to education than the Kenyan national average. The program approach to educating students from primary through post secondary education to obtain a job is unique. Not only are the lives of the women affected, families and their community benefit. MGEF also conducts life skills workshops for the upper grades at primary schools. This program reflects the sincere commitment to educating an individual which in turn educates a community.

At the Students’ Reception in March 2010, I witnessed the roomful of young women who came to give their testimony to the MGEF program. They sang beautifully and spoke eloquently of the difference that MGEF has made in their lives.
