This is why we do it…..

Monica is an example about the need for education for girls in the developing world.  Despite her dreams of going to secondary school, she was forced into an arranged marriage at age 15 instead. Many years and broken promises later, she took a bold step earlier this year and fled with her son.  She told SYEF that she wants her story to be among the last ones like it Samburu. She is motivated to become an advocate for the rights of women and girls.  Her sponsorship from SYEF will begin in January.
