The foundation will strive to provide long term mentorship and counseling for the girls who have undergone FGM in the cultures that still embrace this practice. We also aim to provide safe haven for those in danger through partnership with government and private organizations. Success for us will be when every girl in the world has a fair chance to grow and thrive in dignity.Donate Now
Running International traveled to Laipikia North, deep in Masai country, where Kelly spoke to 6th, 7th and 8th grade girls at Kiwanja Ndege Primary School. The girls learned about being beautiful, how their bodies are temples and their rights as girls and young women. Upon our visit at Kiwanja Ndege, we found the need was so great. Hundreds of students were sharing one pit latrain. Running International has offered to build 8 pit latrines; 4 for girls and 4 for boys.
Running International traveled to Olosho-Oibor, Kajiado to visit the Beloved Daughters Olosho-Oibor Rescue Center. These young ladies were so special - all God-fearing girls who were so dedicated to their studies, and wanting to better their lives. Their stories were so powerful. The girls either had been orphans, rescued before undergoing FGM, or had been rescued before being married to men with multiple wives. The girls ranged from 8-15 years of age. Seventeen of the girls are graduating this year.
