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
