Share a Meal with Children in Rural Kenya
Severe drought has left so many Maasai families without food to feed their children. To help these communities, Nasaruni has begun a school feeding campaign to support our sister school in Loita. Already more children are coming to school because of the feeding program! We need your help to ensure these children get at least one meal a day.
Our goal is to raise $500/month to keep the school feeding program going.
Your generous contribution can
Feed 86 children their meal for one day — $25
Feed 86 children their meal for one school week — $125
By donating to this campaign, you are making a tangible difference in the world… one smiling child at a time. 100% of your donation goes directly to buy the food.
Build hope! THANK YOU for your support!!
One woman’s vision and passion has led to this remarkable undertaking. She is Alice Sayo and she is truly a hero to her people in all respects. Born into a large Maasai family, Alice was the 11th of 12 children. After her father died, she appeared destined for an early marriage, but the efforts of her mother and an older brother enabled her to go to school and follow a different path. She graduated from high school in Kenya and from University in England. Her dream, ever since the miraculous change in her own life, has been to allow other Maasai girls the same opportunity. She has worked tirelessly to gain support for the cause of the girlchild in Narok, Kenya, as a school principal, community outreach educator, and as sponsor for several poor Maasai girls attending secondary school.
In 2011, Alice was chosen as a participant in the International Leaders in Education program, a teacher exchange program sponsored by IREX and the US State Dept. While attending the College of Education at James Madison University, in Harrisonburg, VA, Alice shared her dream with faculty, students, and community members. Nasaruni Academy for Maasai Girls is the result of her vision to provide primary education to girls in the Narok area. She lives with her husband, Bishop Moses Sayo, and their three children in Narok where she continues as a public high school principal while also Director of Nasaruni Academy.[/one_half_last]
