Sian is an eight year old girl who comes from a family of six children. She has four brothers and one sister. Her father was killed in an auto accident in 2012, leaving their mother to provide for the family on her own by selling firewood. Sian’s only sister was removed from school when she was in class seven and married off at the age of 15. Sian’s mother brought her into the MGEF office last September 2017, asking for assistance with Sian’s education. She feared she would have to marry her off because she is unable to pay her school fees and is struggling just to keep her and the other children fed. MGEF accepted Sian into our Scholarship Program, and she started class three in January 2018.
