A day in the life of a Maasai boy

The day of the African Child

June 16th is the Day of the African Child. Find out what a day in the life of a boy from the Maasai tribe of Kenya is like and find out how Compassion is helping him be the first of his 10 siblings to get an education.


The Education Response programs give children and families the tools they need to excel, such as books, school supplies, literacy and financial training for parents and assistance with secondary school fees. With your help, a child can learn new and profitable skills. And future leaders will take the first steps to transform their world.
