Nashinyai Olekomoi

I am a 6 year old Maasai girl who lives in Engikaret, Tanzania. I live in a hut with my mom. I do not know where my dad is, as he disappeared. I help my mom with the goats, but I do not want to do that all my life. I want to. stay in school, and do not want to be sent home, because my mom has no more funds to help me. She got me started in school, but can’t help me anymore.

Thank you for any help, Nashinyai

I am a nine year old Maasai girl and I live in a hut in a very poor village in the bush of Engikaret, Tanzania. I live in a very dusty area where most girls only take care of goats and children. I live with my grandmother and she is very old, and has a hard time getting around. There is no more money to send me to school anymore, and I do not have a mom or dad to help. In my culture, if I do not go to school, I could be sold to be a child bride. I am in Class 2 and I try hard. I need help to be able to stay in school.

Thank you, Tayani

I am a 9 year old Maasai girl and I live in a very poor village in the bush of Engikaret, Tanzania. I live in a hut with just my Mama. I have no father. My mom is very very poor, and has no funds for me to continue in school. I am in Class 2 and I love school. But, if I do not get a sponsor, I am going to be sent home. In my culture, if a girl is not in school, she has to get married. I do not want to get married. Please help me stay in school.

God bless you, Samoyo
