Christine’s father abandoned the family when Christine was very young, and her mother earns a meager living selling beads. Their only cow- a form of currency for the Maasai- died during a severe drought, and the family’s goats were sold to pay school fees. When all the livestock were sold, Christine could no longer afford to attend school. However, after being granted an MGEF scholarship at the beginning of 2016, Christine will be able to realize her dream of being educated.
