Irine’s parents are uneducated and unemployed. Her father depends on selling firewood to provide for his ten children. Due to her family’s poverty, Irine was the only one of her siblings to enroll in school. When Irine’s mother discovered her father had plans to arrange for her marriage, she approached MGEF for help. With an MGEF scholarship, Irine was enrolled at the Kajiado Adventist School, where she will be able to realize her dream of being educated without fear of an early marriage.
