Brian Odhiambo Obilo
Brian lives with his parents, brother, and sister in a one room home made of mud and cement. His parents are casual laborers, looking for work on a daily basis. Many days there is none to be found. They do not have any running water in their home, so they must buy water daily in 20 liter jugs from water vendors. Brian often is the one responsible for getting the water from the vendors and bringing it home.
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 basket, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
