Pastoralist Child Foundation

Pastoralist Child Foundation (PCF) was founded in 2012. The organization is a registered 501C3 tax-exempt public charity based in Glen Ridge, New Jersey. PCF works at the grassroots level to eradicate female genital mutilation (FGM) and forced early marriage in Samburu and Maasai Mara, Kenya. Our workshops for youth, adults and elders have been highly effective in saving girls and women from harmful practices that are deeply rooted in their culture. PCF also focuses on the importance of formal education and has a scholarship program for girls to attend secondary boarding schools.

PCF partners with UNICEF-Kenya, The Girl Generation, Wallace Global Fund, HOW Global, The Samburu Project and other nonprofits to accelerate the abandonment of FGM. Thanks to our collective efforts, the rate of FGM and child marriage is decreasing and the enrollment of girls in school is increasing.

PCF's curriculum includes the harmful effects of FGM, child marriage, teen pregnancy, sexual & reproductive health, HIV/AIDS/STD's, child rights, economic empowerment of women, sanitation, and the importance of formal education.
