For the Maasai, cattle are everything! Cattle provide almost everything they need for survival: food, milk, materials, wealth, status, and they are used in every cultural ceremony. This holiday season the Maasai women have requested to own their own milking cows and goats in order to become economically empowered and help their families.
Livestock serves as a financial backbone for the Maasai people. The cost of one milking cow is $500, and the cost of one milking goat is $100. Join MCV and help Maasai women gain income and strengthen their community.
