Trisha M.

January 2021

Trisha is a 10 year old girl who lives with her sister and mother. Her mother is Maasai and her father is from India. Trisha father left the family and returned to India, leaving her mother to provide for the two girls. Her mother makes a very meager living selling food. She has sold most of her belongings in order to send Trisha and her sister to school. Trisha’s head teacher said she was a very bright girl, but was constantly being sent home due to lack of school fees. With the pandemic, things have become even more bleak for Trisha’s family. Her mother brought Trisha to the local MGEF board member who immediately filled out the application. She was accepted to MGEF and is back in school as of January 2021. Now she can concentrate on her studies and no longer has to worry about school fees.
