When a girl's family is poor, she will be kept from school in order to earn a few pennies per day caring for children and doing household chores.  FGM and Forced Early Marriage often result in frequent teen and pre-teen pregnancies and marriages into a family with multiple wives.  In a small rural village in the Maasai Mara, Kenya, children who are barely babies themselves are required to care for their own children.
