List of Students Who Need Sponsors


Noel Nenkai

Noel Nenkai was born 27 May 1988 to a family of six children. When she was twelve years old, her father died and her uncles decided to marry her off. Her marriage to a 60 year old man was arranged in secret, and her mother, who was opposed to the plan, was not informed. When her mother found out about the engagement, she went to MGEF for help. Noel was sent to boarding school, avoiding the marriage that would not have allowed her to continue her education past the third grade. Noel graduated from Moi Girls Secondary School in 2009. She is currently earning a Teacher's certificate in Early Childhood Development from Emerald College.
