Maasai Visions — Tanzania

A visit to one of The Olive Branch for Children's (TOBFC's) partner sites. The Olive Branch for Children was started by a Canadian woman and her Maasai husband who wanted to create a space to care for children orphaned by HIV/AIDS in Tanzania. The organization has quickly grown to include microfinance coops, health and education projects, and a home-based care system for those, primarily the most vulnerable women, living with HIV/AIDS. They also assist girls who are running from child marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM), both which are largely practiced in Maasai communities. The organization hopes that through education, people have tools to make healthier choices. Kaile is one woman who was assisted by TOBFC to go to school and is now working to educate the children of her community.
