Grace’s father was married to two wives and had 10 children. In 2011, he died from HIV/AIDS. The wives he left behind struggle to make ends meet and can no longer pay for their children’s education. Furthermore, they were both diagnosed with HIV and are currently on medication. Due to these urgent circumstances, Grace dropped out of school in Grade 5. Grace is now in school on an MGEF scholarship, and she’s working to realize her dream of being educated in order to lift herself and her family out of poverty.
