Leah is one of twelve children in her family. Her father, a farmer, cultivates the land for a living, and her mother sells milk and harvests sand. Leah’s parents struggle to meet their family’s most basic needs. Much of their limited income is spent on life-sustaining treatment for Leah’s brother, who has epilepsy. A bright little girl who could never afford boarding school fees nor safely walk to the closest day school 13 kilometers away, Leah was nominated for an MGEF scholarship in early 2016. She now attends the Adams Academy and MGEF will provide her with all she needs to complete school and realize her dreams.
