The Nanyori Shelter Network (Video)

Posted on: Tuesday, October 18, 2011


MADRE is helping support the Nanyori Shelter Network, a group of six shelters in Kenya that feed and care for hundreds of girls who have escaped genital mutilation and forced early marriage. Created by the Indigenous Information Network, MADRE's sister organization in Kenya, these shelters provide support and powerful incentive for girls to attend school. Hundreds of graduating girls will become teachers, nurses, social workers and lawyers who elevate entire communities. Watch the video below to learn more about the Nanyori Shelter Network.
