Evarlyne’s father died in 2008, leaving her mother to provide for the family on her own by selling milk from the family’s only cow. In Grade 8, Evarlyne was first in her class and scored high on the national exam. She managed to get enough money from the Community Development Fund to begin Form 1 but had no further support to pay for the rest of the school year. Evarlyne was at great risk of dropping out of school and being married off when MGEF began sponsoring her in May 2011.
