Christine Naisoi

Christine Naisoi

Christine was orphaned at age 12. After moving in with their grandparents, many of her siblings dropped out of school due to the family’s extreme poverty. Christine managed to finish high school in 2008 and after receiving aid from an NGO, collected enough money to attend Mount Kenya University in 2014. However, after completing her first year, Christine lost the financial support she had been given and found she would not be able to continue her studies. Christine approached MGEF for assistance and was granted a scholarship that would enable her to complete her university education. Christine dreams of using her education to give back to her Maasai community.
