Orphaned at a young age, Agnes lived for many years with her grandmother, who had neither the money for school fees nor the ability to work. Agnes is now under the guardianship of a Maasai couple with eight other children. Though her adoptive parents wish to send their daughters to school, Agnes and her sisters are often sent home because they cannot pay their school fees. An incredibly motivated student, Agnes dreams of pursuing a degree in Environmental Science. She also strives to become a role model for other orphans and disadvantaged children in her community. With an MGEF scholarship, Agnes has enrolled at St. Clare’s Girls Secondary School.
