Review for MAASAI GIRLS EDUCATION FUND, Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I learned of the Maasai Girls Education fun through my church. I realized that while it only takes $250 to fund one year of schooling for one child, I was wearing a pair of $100 shoes and had at least two more pairs at home that cost that much. I was ashamed that I was not doing more for people like the Maasai girls. I further looked at the organization and realized how committed the leaders were and knew I could make a difference - a small difference but yet a difference. People ask me why I choose to fund this organization when there are many need within the United States. I answer, "Yes, there are many needy in the United States and many outstretched hands to help them. The Maasai girls deserve this chance also so I have extended what I can to them. Not only my parents but community members helped me to get a bachelor's and master's degree - it's now my turn to pay it forward."
