When Miriam was 13 years old, she faced a forced arranged marriage. She ran away to a local area chief, who intervened and stopped the marriage. After this chief contacted MGEF, Miriam was offered a scholarship. Under MGEF’s sponsorship, she graduated from secondary school in November 2010 and earned a certificate in Primary Education from the Baraka Joy Education Centre in 2013.
