THE STORY:

BRIGHTER GREEN INC wrote -

The East African Girls’ Leadership Initiative aims to develop Maasai girls’ skills, capabilities, knowledge, and confidence so that as adult women they are successful community leaders and effective advocates for indigenous peoples and the environment at the international level. This is particularly important as climate change and the effects of globalization are felt more intensely by indigenous communities around the world.

All ten girls—bright, but needy—are now working hard in their respective boarding schools in Kenya and Tanzania.

We are looking to raise $1,500 at this fundraiser, enough money to support one girl’s education, mentoring, rights and skills development workshops, and living expenses for one year. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated.

In addition to Brighter Green, The East African Girls' Leadership Initiative is supported by Tribal Link, PAICODEO in Tanzania, and SIMOO and the Indigenous Information Network both based in Kenya.

UPDATE:  We received an anonymous matching grant donation of $1500 and have decided to increase our fundraising goal to $3000 to fund TWO girls' education, mentoring, rights and skills development workshops, and living expenses for one year.
