Sonyanga Ole Ng’ais has been playing cricket for advocacy, shining light to the Laikipia Maasai community as well as Kenya on an international scale. Through cricket, and an award-winning anti-FGM documentary, Sonyanga is addressing FGM from the lens of the custodians of the culture. He has founded the Maasai Cricket ladies as well as Selenken E Maa Films, which enables young Maasai Girls to air their voices! “Selenken e Maa films helps them speak out for themselves, and sports gives them a platform to speak, not just for the community, but address the whole world through media coverage. He says. “Our girls need peer role models, so that they can have someone to mirror themselves with.”
