Wycliffe lives with his parents, two brothers, and three sisters in Kianda village, in Kibera. They have a one room house, made of sticks and mud walls. They do not have any water in their house and must buy it from vendors. Wycliffe comes from a needy family. His father’s income from daily jobs he finds is very low and not sufficient to educate Wycliffe.
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.
