Mercy is a mother of two (boy and girl). She underwent FGM/C at a young age which allowed her to be married off young and have an early pregnancy. As a result, she could not continue with her education after primary school. My parents felt that as she was already a mother she could not go on with school. It was not the end of everything, She volunteered as a local pre-school teacher at Sasaab for ten years now and then had the chance to join SAFE Samburu which she says she is dedicated to with passion.
