Emily Saaloi is the daughter of a single mother who sells beads for a living. In 2011, Emily completed her primary school education and scored an impressive 347 on her KCPE exam, a test that determines admission into secondary school. Kabare Girls High School, among the best in the country, invited Emily to enroll. However, due to the financial burden it would place on her family, Emily could not accept. Hearing of her struggle, an MGEF Division Committee member submitted Emily’s name and application for an MGEF scholarship. Under MGEF’s sponsorship, Emily began secondary school at the prestigious Kabare Girls High School in February 2012.
