Faith Bonareri Bonari
Faith in a child in need. In September 2018, Faith lost her father in a tragic fire in Siranga village in Kibera. Faith’s mother sells groceries, earning a small income but it is not enough to afford to educate Faith and her other siblings. She has a 12 year old brother, and two sisters who are 14 and 3 years old. The family now lives in Kianda village and it is within walking distance of the school that Faith would attend.
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.
