Lucy is a 14 year old girl who is the eldest of three children. Lucy’s parents believe in educating their three children, but they are too poor to pay for Lucy’s secondary school fees. With help from Lucy’s grandmother, who has a small bead making business, and her father, who is a sand harvester, the family has managed to send their children to primary school. Lucy recently completed primary school where she excelled academically and earned a high score on her Kenya Certificate of Primary Education exam. Lucy’s parents, desperate for her to continue in secondary school, brought her to the MGEF office to apply for a scholarship. Lucy was accepted as a Scholarship student in May 2019 and is currently enrolled in Form 1 at Kathiani Girls High School.
