Therese is going back to school in May to attend the Woman Leaders of the World (WLW). A leadership education program offered by Global Women’s Leadership Network.

“Therese is concerned with the lack of early childhood education available to nursery and kindergarten-aged children. “My goal is to start schools on the land donated to each of Sabore’s Wells. Most children do not attend school until they are eight or nine years old. They lose out on the important developmental years because of the distance they have to walk and the unsafe terrain they must travel.” As Sabore’s Wells has completed the first step in bringing water closer to the villages, her plan is to work on the second step by educating the girls.”

“Encounters with animals were common during his walks to and from school, he said. “When you’re walking, you find an elephant and you don’t want him to smell you, so you take a different direction,” he said. “In the presence of animals, you’re always (adjusting).”
Maasai girls and women face similar challenges with animals on their daily 6-mile to 8-mile treks to fetch river water. The girls should be in classrooms, Mr. Oyie said.”
