Jane’s father has two wives and 20 children. Neither of her parents are educated. During one extended drought, Jane’s parents wanted her to marry in order to replenish their cattle herd with her dowry. Jane was already in secondary school and desperately wanted to complete her education. An MGEF scholarship allowed Jane to avoid the marriage and pursue her dream of being educated. In December 2010, Jane graduated from Mount Kenya University and began her career as a dental technician at Nairobi Women’s Hospital. In July 2011, Jane was hired by Compassion International as a health officer in her home area.
