In July 2013, Florence Taki completed her training at Asumbi Teachers Training College. She is now teaching at Nkoilale Primary School, just outside Maasai Mara, and incidentally where both she and Janet Pere attended school as young girls. This brings to 5 the number of Maasai girls that this effort has been able to assist thru college who are now working and meeting their own economic needs. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind that this type of assistance is successful in confronting the economic factors that continue to persist within Maasai families and communities and that perpetuate practices such as FGM and child marriage. To everyone who has been a part of this effort, thank you for continuing to recognize the importance of post-secondary education in the lives of rescued Maasai girls.
