Program for Maasai Girls Post Covid 19, Kenya

Project Leader:

Reverend Ambrose Musyoka

I am Father Ambrose Musyoka, a Catholic priest working among the Maasai community in Narok, Kenya. Due to the pandemic schools have been closed and young schoolgirls are being neglected in the community. The common practice of arranged marriages and early pregnancies is a serious concern. The existing laws against underage girls marrying are not enforced because vast areas are inaccessible. The Catholic Church through the commission of justice and peace (CJPC) has started a program called, Maasai Girls Post Covid-19 Restoration Program. The objective of this program is to educate the community about the importance of learning and offer victims psychological counseling. One of the mandates is to support both the mother and the child by providing hygiene products, clothes for newborns, school uniforms, basic sustenance, and pastoral care. A gift of $25 helps buy soap and cloths.

Dear friends these girls on this photo want our help to get back to school come January next year if the government directive of reopening schools will be executed.And if the schools will not open as planned many of them are going through very difficult time in this uncertain time of covid 19 pandemic.Their parents cannot afford to meet some of their basic needs e.g sanitary towels,clothes,food and medicine of their babies that were born out of long school covid 19 lockdown. Apart from the paying for school fees the project will help them to cope with the severance of covid 19 pandemic effects as they slowly go back to their normal lives.
