How local leaders saved a teen from forced marriage so she can continue her education

One 19-year old participant of our Pioneer Business Planting and Train the Trainer training, Rose (name changed), started crying in class. She shared that she was forced to be married to an older man. Her father is a Massai and has 8 wives and 25 children. He couldn’t provide for her school fees, so he arranged a marriage for her. She just finished high school and wants to continue nursing school.

During our time together, we agreed that some of our local leaders would travel to meet the parents and see if mediation can be done. God provided a miracle as the parents were very open and they agreed not to give her in marriage and let her go to school. God helped us to rescue this girl. We are looking for a way to support her monthly to go to college.
