About the project

The Challenge

Samburu Girls Foundation was started by Josephine Kulea to rescue Samburu girls from retrogressive traditional practices.
Girls as young as 8 risk being married off, suffering from Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) or Beading where girls are assigned to male relatives for sex through red beads.

The Intervention

Safaricom Foundation funded the construction of four classrooms at a cost of Ksh 5.9 million

The Impact

The new classrooms will allow the SGF to establish an institution to educate the girls instead of sourcing for schools elsewhere. This will make integrating the girls back to the community easier after providing them with an opportunity to access education.
This further ties in with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) a set of 17 goals aimed at ending poverty around the world. The fourth goal focuses on providing quality education to all.
