Maasai women's quest to learn

Rights group works to improve the lives of Kenya's Maasai women by increasing their access to education.

    Tuesday is the 100th anniversary of International Women's Day - a day celebrated across the world to mark the economic, political and social achievements of women.

    Kenya's Maasai women are among the poorest and most marginalised groups in the country, with limited access to education.

    Al Jazeera's Catherine Soi reports from the southern town of Kajiado, where a women's group is striving to change this by increasing their access to education, social services and economic empowerment.
