Ivy’s family lives a traditional Maasai life, dependent on their livestock and selling milk. The most recent drought resulted in tremendous losses for the family, and they are struggling to survive. Unlike most families, both parents want all to their children to get an education. Although primary education is free, uniforms and supplies are not, and Ivy’s parents struggle to pay to keep their three school-aged children in school. Thanks to an MGEF scholarship, Ivy is guaranteed an education.
