Dr Asha-Rose Migiro, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, attended the launch of Emusoi: Maasai girls tell their stories on Monday December 14th.
There were more than 100 guests at the event, which took place at the Mercy Corps Action Center to End World Hunger, Battery Park, New York. Guests included members of Emusoi director Sr Mary Vertucci’s family, several of her sisters from Maryknoll, as well as a number of Sr Mary’s old college friends, faithful supporters of the Emusoi Centre, and distinguished representatives from UN agencies and UN diplomatic missions, schools, colleges and NGOs.
A large number of copies of both Emusoi and Dogodogo were sold and many guests promised to urge schools and colleges to use the books as texts for teaching and learning global citizenship.
