List of Students Who Need Sponsors

 

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.

Linet Piraon

Linet was born on April 2nd, 2000. She and her four siblings lost their father in 2005, and have since relied completely on their single, unemployed mother. The family’s sole source of income comes from the selling of livestock, a trade affected by long droughts and dry seasons. Faced with financial instability and poverty, Linet sought support from MGEF in early 2016 in order to attend secondary school.

Nancy Lanoi

Nancy was born in 2004, the last of six children born to her mother and father (now deceased). Her aunt, who is neither employed nor educated, adopted Nancy at an early age and cleans the AIC child care and rescue centre to support the family. Nancy attends AIC primary school and must walk 7 kilometers to school every day, a risky commute for a young girl. Her aunt is seeking assistance to enroll Nancy in boarding at AIC so that she can attend school without fear.

Naomi Namunyak

Namunyak is the younger sister of Nailepu.  Their father does not believe in educating girls, but their mother passionately wanted her daughters to go to school and expressed this wish to everyone she met.
