VOM Welcomes Pendo Moringe to the Roster
2023, following a meeting with a small group of Maasai men, a slender soft-spoken gentlemen asked for my contact info. He promptly followed-up with a meeting request and the next day we sat together over chai and launched conversation about women's rights in Maasai communities.
He proceeded with a pitch of young and talented female vocalist from his community. His articulate claim that her talents would align with interests of VOM made an impression on me; here was this young man, willing to buy me tea and share his authentic perspective, I quietly filled with pride and celebrated the fact that VOM has earned a place in the hearts of the Maasai community and welcomed a meeting of what was described of this blooming and eager young woman.
