The Maasai Girls Education Fund (MGEF)
The Maasai Girls Education Fund (MGEF) was created to improve the literacy, health and economic well-being of Maasai women in Kenya and their families through education of girls and their communities.
MGEF has a holistic approach to achieving its mission. To have a significant impact, the education of girls must go hand-in-hand with the education of the community in which they live. Accordingly, MGEF works in partnership with the community, including local area chiefs and women advocates for education of girls, to achieve its goals.
MGEF also sponsors life skills workshops for girls and boys, and Maasai chiefs and elders, and business training workshops for rural Maasai women, and HIV/AIDS education workshops for the community.
