When Noel was twelve years old, her father died and her uncles decided to marry her off. Her marriage to a 60 year old man was arranged in secret, and Noel’s mother, who was opposed to the plan, was not informed. When Noel’s mother heard of the engagement, she contacted MGEF for help. Under MGEF’s sponsorship, Noel was sent to boarding school, avoiding the marriage that would have ended her education in Grade 3. Noel graduated from Moi Girls Secondary School in 2009 and earned a teacher’s certificate in Early Childhood Development from Emerald College.
