This project aims at adding extra room for girls in pastoralist communities. For ages, the community including Masaai believes that when a girl reaches 10yrs old, she should not sleep in the same house with her parents. In this case, the girl is supposed to sleep outside on a mat or cow’s skin.
On July 2022 while on a mission at Oldorko Mosiru in Kajiado county, I came across a Masai community house called Manyatta. I entered the Manyatta house to ascertain how many rooms it had and the uses for the rooms. The manyatta consists of a room for parents, a room for the kitchen, a room for children below 10 years, and a room for small goats. There is no room for children beyond 10 years.
