I first came across Pastoralist Child Foundation this year when I learnt of the problems facing little girls in the Samburu regions of rural Kenya. I wanted to be able to help a girl child to be protected from the harms of female genital mutilation (FGM) and also to allow her to go to school. i contacted PCF director, Samual Leadissimo, who is one of the Founders. Samuel is Samburu warrior who is taking a stand in his community to help protect girls from harmful traditional practices such as FGM through sensitisation programs and scholarships so girls can go to school. I have had regular contact from both Sam and Sayydah Garratt (Sayydah also made the effort to Skype with me as I am based in Australia, and she is in the US). PCF found a young girl who had been orphaned and was facing a life of servitude to an older man as her only option for survival was to be given to an old man in marriage. This lovely young Samburu girl is now in school and thanks to the work of Sam and Sayydah will be moving on to secondary school next year. Her life is now full of hope because of this gift I am sending from Australia and I feel truly blessed that I have had the opportunity to make a difference to her life. Now a whole generation can be saved from FGM and other harmful practices. The grassroots and voluntary nature of PCF workers means that all my money goes straight to pay for this girl's school and personal needs. Now I feel I have my own daughter in Kenya. I recommend giving to this group as such a small amount can completely transform the life of a girl in Kenya. Highly recommended!

A wonderful organization started by people who really care within the Maasai and Samburu tribes. They are working to make a difference in the lives of children and young women within their communities. Started by accident/miracle when they met Sayydah Garrett while she was visiting Kenya and told her the story of how help was needed. They are making real effective changes! Thank you Pastoralist Child Foundation, Sayydah and all involved.
