Murua Girls Child Education program is a community-based organization registered in Narok county in 2015 and later incorporated as a national NGO in January 2018. Murua girls work among pastoralist communities living around parks, game reserves and wildlife conservation areas, where we are currently implementing in Narok West and planning to scale up to Samburu, Kajiado, Isiolo and Marsabit counties in Kenya.We raise awareness on child rights and protection for abandonment of harmful cultural practices such as Female Genital Mutilation and child marriage,promote access to education for every child and empowering the community to utilise indigenous knowledge while equipping the youth and women with leadership, advocacy and vocation skills for livelihoods.
This is a school based program targeting girls aged 10-15 years to educate them on their bodies, rights and choices. The program focuses on menstrual hygiene management, sexual reproductive health education, career choices and mentorship, advocacy and leadership training and environment conservation through tree planting activities in schools and clean ups.
The community outreach program uses the approach of non-judgemental open dialogues to raise awareness on child rights and protection, ending harmful cultural practices and community-based conservation and protection of wildlife and the environment.
