We are glad to report that Martin has made it safely to Highland! He arrived last night and will be in the area until July 18th. Martin plans to hit the ground running as he has already booked several visits with small groups, churches and organizations. His goal is to meet with as many people at possible and raise awareness for the plight of the Maasai people. Martin was educated at a Nosim school and now he shares his story with his listeners. There are still dates available, please call Nosim at 618-520-1875 to schedule your visit with Martin.
The Maasai people have historically been a nomadic people. The source of their livelihood has been their herds of cattle. In recent years, severe droughts have destroyed their herds, and the people are without a way of making a living. We at Nosim, through the generous giving of our donors, are committed to helping the Maasai people have a brighter future. Education is the key for the Maasai people. The children are eager and bright; they often walk miles to attend schools where they are taught to read and write. Nosim provides books, uniforms and a hot lunch. Sometimes the hot lunch is the only meal they have.
Nosim is committed to insure a full education for boys as well as girls. It is common for young girls to be forced into marriage at a very early age, sometimes as young as 8-10 years old! For the girls who desire to complete their education, we now offer a rescue center. It is a place where girls can live and study. In the rescue center they are free from early marriage and given a safe haven and an opportunity to complete their education.
We at Nosim are so grateful for our generous donors who support the students in their quest for a bright future. Invite Martin to meet with your group today!
God is Good!
Asante Sana! (Thank you!)
