Tyson Lianda Maina
Tyson is an orphan. He depends on his guardian who is unable to meet his daily and basic needs because of the small and inconsistent income in her informal employment. He has two older siblings in their twenties. Tyson lives in Lindi Village in Kibera. He lives in a one room mud walled house. The household relies on untreated water from unreliable water vendors. Sponsorship would ensure that Tyson is able to 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.
