The name Beloved Daughters was derived from a Maasai name, “Intoyie Nanyori” which means ‘we love our daughters’. This love is the reason why we give them a place to live, as we invest in them to better their future through provision of access to quality education, a balance diet, clean drinking water, hygiene and proper health care.

We seek to build their self-confidence and train them to fight for their individual rights. The girls’ rescue initiative was birthed in 2011 with 16 girls, when the Late Assistant Chief Daniel Sankale of Kimuka Sub-Location started rescuing girls from forced early marriage and female genital mutilation (FGM) practices. The late chief initially housed the girls in his home and ensured that they enrolled in school. Later, as the number of girls that needed to be housed continued to grow, the local leaders and surrounding community rallied efforts alongside Simba Maasai Outreach Organization (SIMOO), a non-governmental organization and Outreach Foundation which was led by Stue Ross in building the first dormitory at the center. Olosho-Oibor PCEA Church donated land for the center.
Currently the center is registered as a Community Based Organization (CBO) with eleven committed committee members comprising of church elders, teachers, local leaders, government leaders (chiefs), Olosho-Oibor nurses and community members. The committee’s primary objective is resource mobilization for the benefit of the girls. The center currently has 70 girls as of March 2017. Two additional dormitories were constructed through our Member of Parliament Hon. Moses Somoine who sought the much needed support from KETRACO.
