David lives with his parents, three brothers, and his two sisters in a one room, mud walled house. David’s parents are both quite unwell; his mother’s chronic condition limits her ability to secure sustainable employment that would be manageable with her health condition. Sponsorship would ensure that David is able to continue to receive an education. His school is a 20 minute walk from his home. His favorite subject is social studies.
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.
