Gabriel lives with his parents, brother, and five sisters in Kianda Village, in Kibera. His parents work as they are able to find work, but they do not have a stable income. His father works as a security guard. However, they do not have sufficient income to support the education of their family. Sponsorship would ensure that Gabriel is able to receive an 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.
