Lydia is the youngest of three children. While her family believes that education is important for both boys and girls, they cannot afford boarding school and it is too far and too dangerous for Lydia to walk to the closest public day school. Neither parent is employed and Lydia’s two brothers attend public schools with help from an aunt. A scholarship from MGEF is enabled Lydia to begin classes at boarding school in January 2012.
