M O O D • How we feel not being in the parks all week because of the rain!! 😭😭 Well be there this weekend though and I cannot wait!!!!!! Will you be at the parks this weekend?? 💕💜💕
We are back in Tanzania with some upsetting news. Weve just been informed by Sister Rose that there is a war going on in the Masaai village between men and women over sending some of their girls back to school. These young women are traditionally married by now but their mothers are desperate for them to go on to Secondary school so they have a chance at a future.
The girls age 10-12yrs old, need school tuition to start boarding school on Monday or they will be married off. Once that happens, a chance at further education will vanish for them... forever.
This is a major problem because girls are sold to old men who have many wives for dowry and the girls have no choice. It's a harsh environment. Their lives are no more important than the cows and goats.
Right now, there is no place to take them. There is no way to feed them. It's a very desperate situation. These girls want a future. They need help and my heart is crying. $1000 US per student per year will cover tuition, uniform, supplies and other incidentals.
Receipts will be issued by the school.
