Silantoi is a 13 year old girl from a polygamist family of two mothers and 12 children. Silantoi’s father works as a school watchman, but brings home a meager $30 a month salary. He has already married off four of his older daughters, two of which never attended school. Now he has changed his thinking and with his small salary has managed to send the other eight children to school. With three in high school this year, he is stretched to the limit and feels he cannot support the school fees much longer. The local MGEF-Kajiado Board member heard of Silantoi’s family and their plight and brought her to fill out an application. MGEF accepted Silantoi to their Scholarship program May 2019.
