The River of God Ministries provides a safe haven for young Maasai girls who have voluntarily left their villages to escape “Bride Price Marriages” and the preparation ceremonies, Female Genital Mutilation, for marriage. These young girls are looking for an opportunity to help change their culture. They do not want to be enslaved in marriage as the young third wife of a 40 year old man.
Our goal is to find donors to pay their tuition for four years of secondary education and beyond. Tanzanian education is not state sponsored. Tuition ranges from $300-$850 per year depending on the institutions which are generally boarding schools. We pay for the personal needs of each girl while at school and when they are at our facility during school break. Usually during the first year if the girl returns to the village she is beaten severely and forced into marriage by her father.
