Class 8 Dol Dol girls performing traditional Maasai dance

Ilílaramatak Community Concerns (ICC), a registered Non Governmental Organization (NGO), was founded in September 2011, with the aim of addressing human rights and development concerns of Maasai pastoralist women and girls. ICC believes that the perception of women and girls is the root of their marginalization. Women are denied basic rights because they are perceived as unworthy or incapable of making decisions for themselves and their families. Girls are not supported for education because their value is calculated by the size of their dowry.†
