David is one of four children. He lives with his mother and his father is deceased. The family lives in a one room home made of mud brick. David’s mother works serving tables at a Kibera eatery. She works hard, but it is hard to provide for her family on her low income. Sponsorship of David would ensure he would be able to continue his education.
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.
