Twelve of our girls celebrated the Day of the African Child in the Masai town of Ooloika, approximately 2.5 hours from Hekima Place. They loved experiencing a new place and engaging with the Masai culture. This trip also gave our girls a sense of gratitude for the things they have, like running water and electricity.
Hekima Place actively engaged in planning this celebration. Part of the planning included advocacy around issues of child rights, like ending FGM and child marriage and providing all children with a quality education. These issues matter to our girls- and they should matter to all of us!
