Jane is one of her father's 20 children, eight boys and 12 girls from his two wives. Neither of her parents are educated. During one extended drought, her parents wanted her to marry so that they could replenish their cattle herd. But she was already in secondary school and desperately wanted to complete her education. An MGEF scholarship allowed her to achieve that dream. In December 2010, Jane graduated from Mt. Kenya University and soon began her career as a dental technician at Nairobi Women's Hospital. In July 2011, she was hired by Compassion International as a health officer in her home area. Jane is now attending Kenya Methodist University and on track to achieve a degree in Community Health.
