Empowering Kenyan girls to know they are worthy

Please prayerfully consider supporting the Kenya Big Dream project today.

God created every child, including every girl and boy in Kenya, to experience life in all its fullness. Yet the future for so many children in Kenya is at risk today because of harmful cultural practices that persist due to poverty and lack of education.

In many cultures, female genital mutilation (FGM)—also known as cutting—symbolizes the transition to womanhood and is a traditional practice done on girls as young as eight. In areas of Kenya, it’s often a precursor to child marriage. At least 200 million girls and women alive today have been subjected to FGM, including 4 million in Kenya alone. And globally, 650 million girls were married before their 18th birthday.

The Kenya Big Dream project is a holistic and proven approach to eradicate child marriage and FGM. Our aim is to change social norms harmful to children, strengthen household economic conditions to reduce financial incentives for child marriage, promote education and life skills training for girls, and more.
