Gemma Burford Enolengila
Gemma was born in 1978 in a quiet village in the south of England. Her mother worked in a library and her father was an accountant. When she was a student at Oxford University, she travelled to Tanzania and met her future husband, Lesikar, for the first time. The couple got married in 2003.When they had a baby (a daughter, Lucia) they decided to go and live in Tanzania. ďI want my daughter to have the best life possible,Ē said Gemma.
Lesikar is a Masai and lives in a village near Arusha in the north of the country. There is no electricity in the home and they walk almost a kilometer to get water. Gemma cooks simple dinners of corn and vegetables and she washes the clothes in a bucket. There is a small primary school in the village, but Gemma and Lesikar will also teach Lucia at home.

The children do not go to school, but they study at home with their parents.
