Their mother traveled 70 kilometers to town to give birth  to them, but then she died.  The convent where they were born tried to bring them back to the tribe, but the tribe believes it is a bad omen to accept children with dead mothers, so they would not take the children back.  They left the children in the hut with their mother’s body and moved to a different location. The babies were found by the nuns from the convent. They stayed in the convent until the age of one month. They were then transferred to Samaritan Village. He attends secondary school Form 1.

She is one of ten Maasai girls brought to Samaritan Village when the “orphanage” where they were living was closed by the government. Theirs is a tragic story--too sad to publish here in its entirety.

The girls had been taken from their tribe by a group claiming to be part of a legitimate orphanage. They claimed they were “rescuing” them from becoming child brides (and one of many wives) to an older Maasai tribe member. Although they were “rescued” from that future, they were brought into an even more horrific situation.

Without going into detail, one of the girl’s escaped from the “orphanage” where they were being exploited and was able to tell authorities what had happened to them. The girl’s were immediately rescued and taken to Samaritan Village. Those involved were arrested and put on trial. They received various sentences. (One person involved was sentenced to life in prison.)
