Just after Agnes completed Grade 6, her final year of primary school, her father arranged for her marriage. Agnes was saved by an MGEF scholarship when a local Maasai chief opposed the marriage and brought her to MGEF’s attention. Agnes had been an excellent student in primary school. Recognizing her potential, the chief intervened on her behalf. Agnes is now studying at the Maasai Mara University.
