Christine lives with her parents and four year old sister in Bombululu village, Kibera slum. Christine’s family lives in poverty. Both of her parents find work daily, never knowing if they will have a job for the next day. They earn very little. Christine would benefit greatly from having her education covered. This would help the entire family.
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.
