The Fruits of Reconciliation

By Leonard Lenina | Project Leader

Elizabeth’s elder brother rescued her from Female Genital Mutilation (FGM) at a tender age of 7 years because he saw potential in her.   He took Elizabeth to a girls’ boarding school where she stayed without seeing her family for three years because she had to hide to evade FGM and the possibility of early marriage. 

The head teacher of the girl’s boarding school introduced Elizabeth to Nenkashe Education Centre (NEC) where NEC made plans to counsel Elizabeth and reconcile her to her family. 

Elizabeth was a bright student who recorded good grades in school and this enabled her to perform well in primary and secondary school as well as qualify for university education.

Elizabeth will be 20 years old next week.  She will be celebrating her birthday at Kirinyaga University where she is a second year student in very good academic standing. 

She is half way to complete her course of study in Epidemiology, which is a study of disease patterns that affect humans.  She believes that her choice of the field of study is relevant and important in our current setting where we are coming out of a devastating pandemic that we saw in the form of Covid-19.

We are very proud of Elizabeth’s success and we share the pride with her family and our sponsors who have supported her to make her dream possible.
