Raynard lives with his brother and his parents in Siranga village in Kibera. They live in a one room home made of mud brick, they do not have running water. Raynard’s father works as a night watchman. Although he works hard, he is unable to earn enough to provide for the basic needs of his family. Sponsorship would ensure Raynard would be able to continue his education. Raynard 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.
