Emmanuel is an only child and lives with his parents. His parents are experiencing financial difficulties; they are casual laborers, looking for work daily, earning only $1 dollar a day. They sometimes find jobs helping with construction or cleaning or doing laundry for others. They live in a one room mud walled house in Soweto Village, Kibera. Sponsorship would ensure that Emmanuel is 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 hamper, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
