One Woman/One Girl Kenya Adventure is designed to bring women and girls together from around the globe together to create positive change in our world.
We believe that all women and girls are born leaders with incredible gifts to share with the world. This global impact can only be intensified by uniting together, to learn from each other, inspire, create and take action!
By attending this amazing trip, you will experience unique interactive activities, cultural enrichment, incredible excursions, life changing experiences, new friendships, and create memories to last a lifetime exploring the beauty and the people of Kenya.
One Woman’s partner charity for this empowerment trip is WE and the Kisaruni Girls School located in the Maasai Mara in Kenya. During your trip you will meet the girl that we have sponsored starting her first year of secondary school.
WE believes that education is the catalyst that breaks the cycle of poverty and transforms communities.
While primary education in Kenya is free, secondary education remains incredibly costly and out of reach for young people in the communities that WE works with. Studies suggest that when girls are educated at the secondary level, there is a remarkable impact, not only for the girl, but for her family and community.
In order to educate and empower girls graduating from primary school, in 2011 WE opened Kisaruni Secondary School, which now has two campuses; Milimani and Oleleshwa.
The young women from across the Maasai Mara who receive these scholarships are passionate about learning, pursuing further education and, perhaps most of all, are committed to being a generation of young women with the ability to lead change in their communities.
