Need: Help Stop Female Genital Mutilation (FGM)
Visit our campaign at http://www.igg.me/at/StopFGM to learn about our work with the Maasai and the Alternative Rite of Passage (ARP) they are adopting into Maasailand. Support will help us spread the ARP further into Kenya.
You will also enjoy a beautiful video excerpt from our documentary, Becoming Maasai Women.
ASK has been involved with the Maasai community of Esiteti for 15 years and helped established Esiteti School. It was a result of this school that the Maasai came to recognize that educated girls are more valuable to the community than uneducated girls. By moving to the ARP program and stopping FGM, they have agreed to keep girls in school rather than marrying them off at puberty.
ASK has received international media attention. Please help us spread the word deeper into your community by visiting our campaign at http://www.igg.me/at/StopFGM and share the link.
The Epoch Times, an international newspaper published in 35 countries and in 21 languages, ran a story about Africa School of Kenya's (ASK) work with the Maasai to educate and to underwrite the development of the Alternative Rite-of-Passage (ARP) program. This program is destined to be used throughout Kenya. Already tribes outside of Esiteti are asking for ASK to help them implement it for their communities: http://www.theepochtimes.com/n2/world/female-genital-mutilation-replaced....
We need your help and support to make this happen. Even if you cannot contribute financially, you can help spread the word by sharing the link and sharing our social media posts on Facebook and Twitter: http://www.facebook.com/ASKenya and @ASKenya.
