Meet Teresa


Expanding Opportunities has been working with girls in Kipsing Academy for a few years. The head teacher, Maina Kiboi, is a hardworking advocate for girl child education. He collaborates with local officials to rescue girls from FGM and Early Forced Marriage and place them in school.

This young girl, Teresa, was rescued by the chief and taken to Kipsing Academy to attend school. Maina sought a sponsor for her and Expanding Opportunities stepped in to assist. It is a joyous day when we can say, Maina, we have her covered. Thanks to your donations we are able to assist in these emergency situations and accept a new girl without hesitation.
