MGEF is Going Global!

MGEF students are going places. From a rural Kenyan village to Central America, our very own Abigael Simaloi Pertet is proving how far education and hard work can take her.

How far? All the way to EARTH University in Costa Rica on a full, four-year scholarship to pursue a Bachelor’s Degree in Agricultural Science.

From September thru December 2012, Abigael will attend intensive Spanish classes in her new home, and in January 2013, she will begin her Agricultural Science program. We are proud of her accomplishments and excited that she is getting this opportunity.

Since her MGEF scholarship began in 2004, Abigael has been at the top of her class, fully aware of the importance of education, and grateful for the opportunity, as expressed in an excerpt from one of her poems presented at MGEF’s student reception several years ago.

We celebrate the privilege of acquiring knowledge
To all our supporters we pledge allegiance
Never will we diverge from this privilege
We choose to cling to this advantage.

Abigael will conclude her studies in 2016, and will return home with a wealth of knowledge to help her country and her community.
