The Samburu Girls Foundation, (SGF) is a Kenyan non-profit whose primary work is to rescue girls from child-marriage, beading, and FGM. Over 1183 girls have been rescued and 326 are currently being sponsored in schools around the country. They save lives by advocating against harmful cultural practices and building futures for the girls by getting them in school. After rescuing the girls, they give them a safe place to live and counseling, then focus on education, and also community outreach to educate the community of these harmful cultural practices.
