Litei is a very smart 14 year old girl, who comes from a small family of two brothers. Both of her parents are farmers and had been managing to send all of their three children to school. Litei’s uncle passed away leaving her father responsible for his brother’s family, but he still managed to keep both families going and the kids in school.
Litei did very well in primary school, receiving high marks on the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) exam and was excited to be accepted to a very good national school for her secondary education. Unfortunately in the fall of 2018, her father was diagnosed with kidney disease and now the family struggles to afford his medication and medical bills. He can no longer pay the school fees for Litei, so he came to one of our board members to ask for assistance. He is very proud of his daughter, and feels she is too smart to not continue her education. The board member brought Litei to MGEF where she was accepted into the scholarship program. She started classes at her new school this January 2019.
