Joram lives with his parents and three sisters in a one room mud walled house. His family lives in abject poverty; the parents do not have a consistent income. They are casual laborers, looking for jobs, often daily. Sponsorship would ensure that Joram is able to receive an education, taking a little pressure off of his parents and giving them great joy for their son.
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.
