Janet is one of 36 children in a household shared between her father and his 5 wives. Both of Janet’s parents are illiterate, and the family’s only income comes from farming. Eleven of Janet’s sisters have already been married off in order for the family to benefit from their dowries. Due to their extreme poverty, none of Janet’s siblings have gone on to secondary school, and it seemed inevitable that Janet would have the same fate. However, with a scholarship from MGEF, Janet was able to further her education at Sajiloni Girls Secondary School and is now enrolled at Kiriri Women’s University of Science and Technology, where she is pursuing her diploma.
