Empowerment

Traditionally, Masai women are regarded as the property of their husbands, over whom they have control. School education, and in particular secondary school, is not always provided for girls.
HftM talks to Maasai men and also married couples and this educational work over the last 25 years has led to a change in thinking in society and culture.

A good education helps girls and young women to become independent of their families' money and thus also to achieve independence.

In cooperation with the women of Malambo, we want to continue to develop ideas on how women's projects outside of our school project can be realised and how a self-determined life can be made possible.

In the past, there has already been seed funding for a solar filling station for mobile devices (see picture) and other small projects.

Evangelism

When Angelika (founder of HftM) came to Tanzania, she also travelled to places where people had never heard of the Bible and God's love. She still draws her strength, charity and perseverance in difficulties and successes from prayer and the Bible.

In Tansania sind 63% der Bevölkerung Christen (Statista 2022) und auch den tansanischen Angestellten von HftM ist es ein großes Anliegen die Nächstenliebe und die Liebe Gottes weiterzugeben. Als Organisation sehen wir Unterschiede im Leben der traditionellen Massai im Vergleich zu Massai, die Christen wurden. Frauen und Mädchen werden gesellschaftlich viel mehr gefördert, die Anzahl der Mädchenbeschneidungen in der Massaikultur ging zurück und es findet weniger Zwangsheirat statt.

Hilfe für die Massai bietet als christlich-humanistische Organisation Filmabende in der Steppe an, bei denen Geschichten der Bibel gezeigt werden. Viele unserer Meetings werden mit Gebeten begleitet und die Angestellten organisieren Andachten und bei Bedarf Seelsorge.
Evangelism and charity are not projects of HftM, 
but rather the foundation on which the whole project rests.
