Meet Alice Sayo, the Co-Founder of Nasaruni Academy
Alice Sayo’s remarkable story begins with being the 11th of 12 children from a Maasai family. As a young girl, her father died, and Alice was bound for an early marriage and bearing children.
But her family wanted her to get an education and live a different life. They sent her to high school in Kenya and university in England. Since then, she’s wanted to provide Maasai girls with the same educational opportunities. She’s been a school principal, community outreach educator, and has sponsored the education of Maasai girls. Nasaruni Academy fulfills her dream of educating and nurturing girls from primary to secondary school.
