Dancan lives with his mother. They were abandoned by his father when Dancan was at a tender age. His mother must do casual labor, looking for jobs each day in order to earn an income for herself and Dancan. It is a hard life for them. They live in Lindi Village on the outskirts of Kibera.
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.
