MEET has opened up doors for vulnerable maasai girls who would be otherwise raising kids at younger age and in the bushes herding their husbands livestock. By enrolling more girls in school, we are assured of a bright future for the girls, their families and the whole society at large.

This is a beautiful charity and a beacon of hope in the Kenyan Maasai young female community.
I was fortunate enough to get to see this charity up close and personal when I was there two years ago.
Young Maasai girls dont have a future in Kenya unless they are educated. Many families cannot afford this so that's where the charity comes in to help.
Only the neediest girls are chosen until, hopefully, they can all be chosen. Then, the whole community will be enriched.
The girls that I met are warm and extremely appreciative. The others are hopeful that they can be served as well.
Visiting and seeing the need here has changed how I see the world. We all need to help each other. The needs are enormous but so is our capacity to meet them. There's more than enough love to go around!
