Peninah was born to a father with two wives and nine children. Both of her parents are illiterate, and her family lives in extreme poverty. In April 2010, Peninah was forced to marry illegally. Peninah’s father forbade her from informing her school’s authorities of the marriage. Friends brought this issue to the principal, who informed authorities in the District Education Office. Peninah was rescued and brought to the MGEF Kajiado Office. Peninah is now continuing her studies under an MGEF scholarship.
