Seleyian is a fourteen year old girl whose brother contacted MGEF in the spring of 2017. Her brother was desperate to keep his little sister in school. He had been supporting her education but had lost his job and was no longer able to send her to school. He was afraid his sister would be married off. In his search for help, he found us on Facebook and messaged us. He was told to contact the MGEF Kajiado office, which he immediately did. He came in and filled out the application and continued to be in contact for the results. Seleyian is a very bright girl and does very well in school. Her brother’s persistence impressed us all, as did Seleyian, when he brought her to the 2017 Mentoring workshop that was held at the beginning of December. We are happy to welcome Seleyian into the MGEF Scholarship Program and are also very pleased to have her brother as an advocate for girl’s education in the Maasai community. She began grade 7 in January 2018.
