In a small town on the outskirts of Kajiado, Kenya, one school offers hope to many girl students who otherwise might have been forced to undergo FGM (Female Genital Mutilation) and Forced Early Marriage. In Kenya, it is now an illegal practice to marry a child bride however most homesteads are situated in extraordinarily rural locations which make it difficult to monitor such activity.   Most girls drop out of school by the age of 10.  The students at this school demonstrate their appreciation of the gifts of education and friendship.
