Giving Tuesday (Last few days!) + Puma Sponsorship Announcement! November 28, 2021



November 30th was Giving Tuesday - and what better way to give during the Holidays than through the gift of education.

In celebration, our anonymous donor has pledged to match up to $5000 in donations to the Amazing Maasai Girls Project.  Whether we collectively raise $44 or $4,444, your donation will be doubled- this week only!  


How Does Your Donation Help? 

We've been able to accomplish a lot this year, all thanks to your donations of the year past. As a reminder, upward of > 95% of every dollar goes direct to educate a girl in Laikipia, Kenya because we are volunteer-run. 

Here is what we have accomplished so far in 2021: 

  • Welcomed 42 Amazing Girls back to school after the schools were shut down in 2020. They are on an accelerated schedule to catch up with the normal school year. 
  • Ushered in 17 new freshman faces (Form 1) into boarding schools (that's 59 Amazing Girls total in school currently)
  • One Amazing Graduate had a B+ average and gained a 50% government scholarship to a four-year college program at Chuka University. We support her remaining tuition costs. This is our 4th college student that the Project is sponsoring our high school graduates in college.
  • Two former Amazing Girls graduated college this year, Merina from Nairobi University and Terry graduated Egerton University (pictured above). Congrats! 

DOUBLE MY DONATION!


NEW!!! Amazing Girls Running Club

We are pleased to announce that the Amazing Maasai Girls Project has been accepted into a PUMA-sponsored Running Program in partnership with Women Win. As such, we are developing an all-girls running program in the secondary schools of Laikipia. The program will be open to all female students, including but not limited to Amazing Girl scholarship recipients. We are working with Olympic Champion Douglas Wakiihuri to train talented local women runners from the area, including a former Amazing Girl, who will lead the program. We look forward to sharing more about this program as it develops and offer empowerment opportunities to even more girls.

Note: This program is purely funded by Puma for three years. As always, your donations will continue to go straight to support the tuition scholarship program.
