Christine Tinde

Christine was born on March 7, 2003. She has four siblings. Her father abandoned the family when Christine was young, and her mother sells beads to earn a meager living. Their only cow –a form of currency in Maasailand –died in the recent drought,  and the family’s goats were sold to pay school fees. Christine will be granted a scholarship by MGEF in 2016, so that she may continue her education.

Doris Toret

Born in 2002, Doris is one of nine children born to an unemployed father and his two wives.  One daughter has already been forced to drop out of school, undergo FGM, and marry at the age of thirteen. The family subsists only on the income one mother earns from selling livestock, constructing Maasai huts, and collecting firewood. When her mother remarried, Doris was sent to live with her grandmother, as her stepfather did not wish to care for her. She missed countless school days due to torn uniforms, a lack of school fees, and household demands.  Determined to become a role model for her sisters, Doris has applied for an MGEF scholarship in 2016. With an education, she plans to help her mother and grandmother rise out of poverty.

Esther Loita

Esther is an impressive scholar, scoring well on both a national test and in general studies. Nevertheless, her future was threatened by poverty. Esther, her siblings, and parents rely entirely on her mother's meager income, which comes from selling beads. Money simply was not available for Esther to continue beyond primary school. Her determination caught the attention of an MGEF committee member, who submitted her name for scholarship consideration. Esther was accepted immediately and, in January 2012, she began Noonkopir Girls Secondary School.
