Shantel Mwai Gladys
Shantel is one of 5 children, her family lives in mud brick home in Raila village in Kibera. Shantel’s single mother works hard as a laborer, looking for work each day. Her income is low and unsteady, she has a hard time affording the daily needs of her family. Your sponsorship of Shantel would allow her to receive an education. Shantel helps her mother by carrying purchased water to their home.
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.
