Tyren comes from a family in need. His parents have been missing since the fire tragedy in Kibera in early September 2018. He is staying with his auntie who runs a small grocery shop in Kibera with very little income to support her family and also Tyren. They live in Lindi Village in Kibera in a small one room house within walking distance of the school that Tyren attends. Sponsorship would ensure that Tyren is able to continue receive an education.
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.
