Wayne lives with his parents and two younger brothers in Kianda village in the Kibera slum. Wayne’s parents works as casual laborers in Kibera, her father as a mason and her mother doing laundry. Their income is very low, and they are not able to fully support their children in their education. Wayne’s family lives in a one room home made of sticks and mud. They do not have access to tap water in their home and must buy it from local vendors.
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.
