Please help me support girls' education in Kenya through the Amazing Maasai Girls Project! I'm raising enough money to send one girl to high school for four years, only $1,600! To help motivate you to donate, I'll be running a half marathon in one of my favorite places in the world with some of the most amazing people in the world, the Maasai and then I'm doing a climb up Kilimanjaro. Ahhh, I'm so excited to be part of such a great cause. Its been proven that educating girls is the best way to raise an entire community from poverty. Girls bring their knowledge back to their communities and help to educate others, spreading the wealth! Let's spread our wealth! Thanks!

The Amazing Maasai Girls Project (AMGP) was founded in 2011 by a small team of volunteers, who believe in the importance of keeping adolescent Maasai girls in school and out of childhood marriage.
Their mission is to provide high-school scholarships to academically gifted girls from Maasai villages in Laikipia, Kenya, whose families would otherwise have no means to afford the school fees.
Year 4 of the Amazing Maasai Marathon is being held on August 30th, 2014!
