Nanyori Yamat is a 19 year old Maasai woman who was sponsored by Emusoi. She is albino and has finished studying tailoring in a nearby vocational school. Her mother is a widow with four other children. The fact that she is an albino puts her in danger. In Tanzania, albinos are being hunted down and killed for body parts to be used in witch craft. Many have been murdered, mostly in Western Tanzania. Her family is here in Northern Tanzania but even so her neighbors told her if she comes home to stay inside and try not to be seen because she will be hunted as an albino. We are in Northern Tanzania but the danger is that albinos are being kidnapped to sell their body parts. Sometimes they aren’t even dead when the body parts are taken. The body parts are taken from babies, children, adult albinos. Nanyori is, of course, afraid to go home because her father is dead, and she has no strong protector.
