Educate A Kuria Girl

Four in every five girls in Kuria will not complete basic education due to FGM practise. We are raising funds to keep 20 girls in school.

17 year old Bettina Ngáina, her parents and six sisters from Kebaroti village in Kuria West Sub-county of Migori County in Kenya are living under the constant fear of their family being attacked by their own community. The motions that go through the family everyday are not only sad but frightening. Bettina’s community has threatened to forcefully circumcise her and her sisters against their wish. She is now at the risk of dropping out of school because her parents cannot afford to pay for her education.

Her parents’ efforts to reach out to the community through a fundraiser failed because the community cannot support education for girls who have not undergone FGM, a critical cultural practise in the community. Her family is considered an outcast and is shunned from participating in community social activities because they have not conformed to the cultural rite of passage.In Bettina’s community, girls primarily aged between 10 and 15 are subjected to FGM, which then leads to early marriage and them dropping out of the education system. 

However, with your support, girls like Bettina and her sisters can get an education and remain in school saving them from early marriage. 

With as little as Kshs.100, Bettina and girls under pressure like her will complete their education, be safe from the inhumane practise and stand up for other vulnerable girls. Be part of their great story by donating to this cause.
