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 the sole provider of the family by selling firewood. Sian 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 Sians 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.
