RoHo has partnered with Africa Schools of Kenya (ASK), a nonprofit working with the Maasai people living outside of Amboseli National Park in Kenya. $2 from each bracelet funds scholarships for Maasai girls in southern Kenya as well as programming to end the harmful practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) and early childhood marriage in this area.
ASK provides scholarships for students from elementary school through high school (and beyond!) as well as educational programs on healthcare, leadership, community sustainability, gender equality, human rights and other critical global issues.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a common practice in most Maasai communities and often leads to early marriage and severe health risks. ASK has created an Alternative Rites of Passage program to reinforce the community's decision to stop FGM. This program includes education on girl's rights, reproductive health, sexual harassment, HIV/AIDs prevention and self esteem building.
Thank you for your support!
