Our Mission: Preparing Maasai Girls for a Brighter Future
The Maasai Children’s Initiative (MCI) advocates for social empowerment and economic development for Maasai girls through education, leadership development and technology training. While we support the education of all Maasai children, our vision is that Maasai girls become empowered to determine their own futures, make wise life decisions and positively impact their communities.
