Brenda and her mother live in abject poverty in Darajani village in Kibera. Brenda was abandoned by her father at a tender age and has been raised by her single-mother. Her mother is a casual laborer with no consistent income. They live in a mud-brick home and must buy all of their water from vendors. Sponsorship would ensure that Brenda is able to receive an education.
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 with a high price to the children here; they must provide their own supplies and uniform, which they cannot afford. Sponsorship provides school fees, a school uniform, lunch at school, a monthly food hamper, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
