Education for girls in my culture is not a priority. Most families consider a daughter’s education to be unnecessary and a poor investment. For those lucky enough to finish primary education, only a handful of girls ever make it to secondary school. Instead they are wed, young and uneducated, as children.
100 million young girls are expected to marry in the next decade. These girls are crying out, but their voices are not being heard. I can see their faces, full of sorrow, sadness and despair. They have no hope and no rights.
But I see a brighter future for them. I see smiling faces, full of energy and passion, ready to change the world for better. I see them empowered and with proper education. I see them as senior executives in big companies, owning their own businesses, heading government ministries, and championing rights for humanity.
It is my dream to bring them a future of hope. Since 2008, I have been working to build a girls' school in Enoosaen so that other young African girls might travel the same path I did to education, self-realization and leadership. This is my dream.
I need your help to realize this dream. Join me in building a new future for the girls of Kenya. Please make a donation online today. I will send you regular updates on our progress and successes.
