Janet’s family is economically challenged, and Janet is living with a guardian. Her older siblings require much support which the family is finding difficult to provide, this endangers Janet’s own educational prospects. She is behind her age-relevant school grade. She has two older brothers and three older sisters. Sponsorship would ensure that Janet is able to continue her education. Her school is within walking distance. Janet helps her guardian by fetching water.
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.
