Ann Silantoi

Ann Silantoi

Both of Ann’s parents are illiterate and her father does not believe in educating girls. Still, Ann completed primary school in 2010, scoring higher on the national test than any other girl in her school. After her outstanding performance, Ann was admitted to Barak Oontoyie Secondary School, an institution that accepts only the brightest students. Ann managed to raise enough money to pay for her first year but because her family could not afford to continue funding her studies, Ann was faced with the imminent end to her education. Thankfully, she received an MGEF scholarship. Ann completed secondary school and is now studying Commerce at the University of Nairobi, where she will graduate in 2019.
