NLIPP’s education interventions aim to break the cycle of disempowerment and poverty within Maasai society by providing children, with education access and support. We believe that when children are educated, they are better able to diminish negative and harmful practices towards women within Maasai society - such as female genital mutilation, early and forced marriage and gender based violence - and seek to retain and promote the positive aspects of their culture.

Furthermore, providing girls with secondary and tertiary education breaks negative cycles as educated women later return to aid and develop their communities as qualified professionals.
