"Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world." - Nelson Mandela
RoHo has partnered with Africa Schools of Kenya (ASK), a nonprofit working with the Maasai people living outside of Amboseli National Park in Kenya. Profits from RoHo's I <3 Education Bracelets fund girls' education initiatives in the area.
ASK provides scholarships for students from elementary school through high school (and beyond!) as well as educational programs on healthcare, leadership, community sustainability, gender equality, human rights and other critical global issues.
Female genital mutilation (FGM) is a common practice in most Maasai communities and often leads to early marriage and severe health risks. ASK has created an Alternative Rites of Passage program to reinforce the community's decision to stop female circumcision, or FGM. Alternative Rites of Passage include sessions on girl's rights, reproductive health, sexual harassment, HIV/AIDs, and self esteem.
