Condoleza is a total orphan. She depends on her guardian who has an unsteady flow of income and is unable to meet Condoleza’s daily and basic needs. She has one brother who is 11 and one sister who is 10 years old. They live in Lindi village which is on the outskirts of Kibera. They live in a one room home made of stick walls covered in mud. They do not have a water supply and they must rely on water vendors. Condoleza is passionate about learning.
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.
