I am so inspired by this amazing woman! Kakenya Ntaiya grew up in a tradition Maasai family in Kenya where girls are often promised to be married at an early age and expected to stop attending school. Ntaiya rebelled against this destiny and, defying the odds, completed high school and went on to college in the United States, were she was determined to do something to improve the lives of other Maasai girls, Ntaiya founded the Kakenya Center for Excellence.
A school for girls and the first institution of its kind in her region of Kenya. Opened in May 2009, the Center focuses on academic excellence, female empowerment, leadership, and community development.
