Kevin lives with his parents and two brothers (14 and 3 years old) in Soweto Village, in Kibera. His parents, a night guard and a cook, are not able to find regular work. Each day they must try to find a job that they can do in order to earn a small income. They live in abject poverty. They live in a one room, mud brick house. They do not have access to any water in their home and must buy it daily from vendors.
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.
