Lavender lives with her parents in a one room, mud brick home in Kibera. Lavender’s father works as a night guard, her mother is currently unemployed. The income the family is able to earn meets their daily needs, but they are unable to afford an education for Lavender. Your support would ensure Lavender would be able to continue her education. The family purchases water from local vendors. Lavender helps at home by washing the dishes.
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 basket, emergency medical care, and the Saturday Bible Club through International Needs Kenya.
