Rescue Center

While circumcision is officially prohibited by the Kenyan government, many Maasai continue the practice as part of their culture and rite of passage for girls.

A former government teacher, Hellen knew that the best way to protect the girls was to enroll them in a boarding school where they are cared for, educated, and under the protection of the Kenyan government.

Rescued girls live in the boarding school when school is in session, and in a home provided by Salaton Ole Ntutu in the Widow’s village while on school breaks.
