Zainab’s father suffers from an illness that prevents him from working and forces the family to dedicate a large portion of their income to his medical expenses. Her father’s illness has a profound psychological affect on her mother, who also does not work. Before receiving her MGEF scholarship, Zainab was dependent on the charity of others to continue her education. Zainab had no means of continuing to fund her education and was on the verge of dropping out of school when MGEF began sponsoring her in 2011. Now, Zainab has proven to be a bright, hard-working student and has been one of the top five students in her class every year.
