Samson lives with his 20 year old sister in Kibera. She tries to find daily work to provide for Samson, but she struggles to provide for his basic needs or education. An education is so important in Kenya because it helps to break the cycle of poverty and give hope for a brighter future.
Kibera is the 2nd largest slum in Africa, with an estimated quarter of a million people living in 1.5 square miles. There is no waste removal or clean water, and open sewage runs through the slum. Many children regularly go without food, they are malnourished and suffer from many diseases. Education comes with a high price to the children of Kibera. They must provide their own supplies to attend, which they cannot afford.
