Providing an education and safe refuge for at-risk Kenyan girls

Help provide at-risk girls with a safe shelter, food, counseling and the opportunity to attend a neighboring primary school, so they may have an alternative for a better future.

Amidst the natural beauty of Kenya's Great Rift Valley, life is difficult for women. Traditionally, young girls – sometimes as young as 12 years old – are expected to mark their passage to adulthood with ritual female genital mutilation (FGM), so they may marry much older men. Though FGM and early marriage are becoming less common with formal education, these troubling practices still exist.

The restrictive nature of a young girl's future is set once she goes through FGM, and there are many girls who desire something more: an education and a chance at a different life.

The Marie Adelaide Girls Rescue Center is more than just a shelter – it's a place where young girls can be safe and achieve greater confidence, as they pursue the life God wants for them. For most of these Maasai girls, seeking refuge at the center is a brave decision. By choosing options other than traditional female genital mutilation or early marriage, many of these girls will be isolated from their families and the only communities they have ever known. They can only take this difficult path with help – our help.

Cross Catholic is committed to supporting this empowering project. We hope you will partner with us as we reach out with the arms of Christ to let vulnerable Maasai girls know that God has a plan and purpose for their lives.

Proceeds from this campaign will be used to cover any expenditures for Rescuing and Empowering Young Kenyan Girls incurred through June 30, 2018, the close of our ministry’s new fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the project, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry.
