This young Maasai girl is kept from getting an education in order to care for her siblings while her mother searches for water or firewood. Young tribal Kenya girls are not valued for more than cooking, cleaning, child rearing, and marriage. By age nine, many Maasai girls are taken for Female Genital Mutilation, and sold for marriage for as few as five to ten cows.
