Maasai Women Community & Human Rights

Today we learned about human rights with a special emphasis on women’s rights. The participants discussed women’s rights in their perspective countries and the importance of women in the development and advancement of societies. In line with this learning we were able to visit a Maasai women community and hear about their experience with female genital mutilation – a touching and thought-provoking experience:

Paulina: “Stop female genital mutilation to save women lives”.

Beyza: “Big changes take place by the accumulation of little changes. So if you want to make world better,take action. It is better than worrying without doing anything”.

Qiqi: “Educated young people are the most important power to change a bad situation . Even though we cannot change the world, we can change our family at first”.

Shariemar: “When approaching a problem you have to be patient, creative, resourceful, and perseverant”.
