Dorcus is the first rural Maasai Woman runner to be considered to run in the NYC Marathon! Dorcus is the first born of a family of 9 children. She has 4 younger brothers and 4 younger sisters. Her parents managed to send her to school after selling a few of their cows. She finished secondary school successfully and was employed by MWCT as Ranger.Through community outreaches conducted by MWCT, Dorcus learned that MWCT offers opportunities for employment for Maasai women.
“In our community, traditionally women are not known to work any jobs and the job that I have here at MWCT empowers me to be more independent and provide for my family. My parents have invested in me by selling cows for me to go to school and I would like to give something back to them. I am also very proud to be a role model for my younger siblings and the women of my community”.“I like to work as a Ranger, as I have learned much about wildlife and I can see how wildlife benefits my community”. - Dorcus
