Grace Akinyi Auma
Grace lives with her family in the village of Kianda, in Kibera. She has three brothers and one sister. She comes from a needy family. Her mother is single and as a casual laborer cannot afford to educate Grace. She needs to look for new work each day and does not earn a very large wage for her work.
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.
