Joy’s mother is a widow who struggles to keep food on the table for her six children. Due to lack of income, she was forced to marry off her oldest daughter at the end of primary school.
An MGEF-Kajiado Board member who knows the family was concerned that Joy, an ambitious and bright 11-year old, would also be married off. The Board member brought Joy to the MGEF-Kajiado office to fill out a scholarship application. Joy was accepted as a Scholarship recipient in May 2019 and she is thrilled to be joining the MGEF family as a Class 4 student at AIC Girls Primary Boarding School.
