The babies were found by the nuns from the convent. They stayed in the convent until the age of one month.

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.)

Carren

Nasma/Carren

May 21, 2021

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.) She is in Form 1 at Bethania Secondary School

Jackson is the twin brother of Jacqueline. Their mother was mentally ill, and attempted to deliver them in the road because she could not find the hospital.  People found her and brought her to the hospital. Their  mother then disappeared. The twins stayed at the hospital for three months. They were then transferred to Samaritan Village because no one came to claim the children.

Jackson is in his first year of business college studying to be an accountant.
