Winnie lives with her parents, two brothers, and sister in Kibera. They live in a one room home made of sticks and mud walls without any running water in their home. They must buy water daily in 20 liter jugs from water vendors. Her father works odd jobs for small pay and her mother sells maize in the market. Winnie’s parents are able to provide just the basic needs of their family, but educational needs are a challenge. Winnie’s siblings take her to school because she is too young to go on her own. Kibera is the second largest slum in Africa. There is no waste removal or clean water, and open sewage runs through the slum. Education comes at a high price to the children here. Sponsorship provides school fees, a school uniform, lunch at school, a monthly food basket, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
