Peris belongs to a family of eight children. Her two older sisters were married off at the ages of 11 and 13. Neither of her parents are employed. Peris’ family lives in one of the most remote areas in Kaijado and there were no public schools nearby that Peris could attend. MGEF began to sponsor Peris in 2005, enrolling her as a boarding student at Moi Girls Secondary School. In December 2011, Peris graduated from Emerald College with a certificate in Early Childhood Development and later earned a teacher’s diploma from Emerald College.
