An education gives these children the tools to deal with the modern world as well as hope for a bright future. Education has been shown time and again to be a key element in reducing poverty, achieving gender equality and social development. Over the years, many projects have begun to help the Maasai find ways to preserve their traditions while also balancing the educational needs of their children.
As a people, they are coming to understand that education need not be seen as a surrender to mainstream culture, but rather as a way to fix those aspects of their own culture that need fixing – particularly in the treatment of women and girls. Despite this new awareness, there are still many factors that make it difficult for a Maasai child to obtain a good education. Expense, distance and cultural challenges are the top three.
