AbstractThe education of girls living in Maasailand in Kenya's arid and semi-arid regions presents many challenges. This policy brief explores how deep-seated perceptions embedded in Maasai culture hold girls' back. This research looks in depth at Kajiado and Narok counties, both predominantly Maasai areas that have some of the lowest school enrollment and completion rates in the country. Drawing from her own experience as founder of Let Maasai Girls Learn, the author contributes much-needed analysis and data on the status of girls' education in Maasailand. The brief explores how factors like Female Genital Mutilation, childhood marriage, a preference for boys, environmental factors like drought and famine, and the burden of household chores mitigate against the education of Maasai girls. Gaps in current policy frameworks and interventions in the Maasai community are outlined, along with detailed proposals for engaging key gatekeepers who are pivotal to getting (and keeping) Maasai girls in school. A key takeaway is that, too often, well-meaning governmental and non-governmental interventions intended to help Maasai girls have alienated elders and overlooked the value of community-led solutions grounded in existing Maasai social and cultural capital. (As Provided).
