After Mumeita completed her first year of secondary school, her parents were no longer able to pay school fees. Mumeita was an A student with a bright future ahead of her, so outstanding that letters of recommendation from the headteacher of her primary school and from the assistant chief in the area where she lived were attached to her application for a scholarship. Mumeita lived up to these recommendations and graduated from Moi Girls Secondary School in November 2009, achieving an A- on the Kenya national test, almost unheard of for a Maasai girl from rural Kenya. Her dream was to become a doctor, and she will have the opportunity to realize that dream thanks to doctors at Bethesda Emergency Associates and Suburban Hospital in Bethesda, Maryland, who have joined together to sponsor her medical school education. In September 2012, Mumeita will spend her school break as a volunteer at the MGEF Kajiado office.
A donation to MGEF will help to buy shoes, a uniform, and supplies for a student, or pay school fees for a needy girl to go to school.
Sponsorship is an opportunity to be a part of one student's life for the duration of her education and beyond. If you are interested in sponsoring a student, please contact MGEF so that we can discuss which is the best student for you.
