We are so excited to support education for girls around the world, and explore East Africa with Juliet Cutler in her new book Among the Maasai: A Memoir. When Juliet leaves the United States to teach at the first school for Maasai girls in East Africa, she does so in the hopes that her work there will empower young women who face overwhelming odds--poverty, forced marriages, rape, and genital cutting. Working alongside local educators, Juliet is transformed by the community she finds in Tanzania and by witnessing the life-changing impact of education on her students.
