Ruth is the first-born of four children. Her father is poorly educated, having only completed the fourth grade, and serves the community as an unpaid preacher. Because she lived 10 kilometers away from the nearest school, Ruth often arrived late to class, impeding her ability to learn at the same level as her fellow students. Her father, unable to pay for boarding school himself, sought the assistance of Kajiado Adventist School’s principal, and Ruth’s story was then presented to MGEF. Ruth has been sponsored by MGEF since Grade 3.
