What we take for granted, the women in Kakenya Ntaiya’s village are denied. As members of the Maasai community, Kakenya and her fellow women were looked down upon by the men of their society. In a way, their cultural customs discourage a woman’s success: before women even reach high school, they are married-off and relegated to a life of service to their husband and children. But Kakenya fought her way to college, and eventually became the first Maasai woman to do so. And, because women do not forget, she founded “The Kakenya Center for Excellence” to give back.
