Not everyone is able to make a long-term commitment to sponsor a student, so we have established a General Scholarship Fund to offer scholarships to girls without having to find a sponsor first. This gives MGEF the ability to respond quickly to emergency situations, and has saved many girls from forced marriages, or from having to drop out of school because of poverty. The General Scholarship Fund is a pool of donations designated for education costs, but not for a specific student, and supports over half of our students from primary school through university.
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.
MGEF's Scholarship Program is designed to get more girls enrolled in school and to do everything possible to keep them in school until they have the knowledge and skills to get a job in Kenya.
