Jane’s father died when she was very young, leaving her mother to care for six children on her own. The family went to live with Jane’s mother’s parents, who still had young children of their own to raise. When Jane was brought to MGEF’s attention, she was 8 years old and had never been to school. In 2008, Jane was orphaned when her mother died after a brief illness. With an MGEF scholarship, Jane has been able to continue her education in the hopes of lifting her family out of poverty.
