Grace is a 12 year old girl with three brothers and one sister. Her mother is the main provider of the family with laundry work around town. Grace’s father has become a burden to the family with alcoholism and leaves the task to his wife to feed the family. Grace has been in and out of school, as her mother struggled to pay her school fees. In 2017 she was sent home from school for lack of school fees. Her mother knows that her children must be educated in order to stop the cycle of poverty in their family. Very determined, she came to the office at least two times a month for almost a year, to see if there was any openings in our Scholarship program for Grace. June 2018, MGEF was able to accept Grace into the MGEF family. She is so happy to be able to go back to school.
