Description of the situation: Steven - born 2015 - lives with his parents and siblings Collins (2007), Juniour (2009) who is also in our program (ID 52191) and Jane (2019). The mother is housewife and father is fisherman. Family has only around 3,000 KES/30 EUR per month. The family lives in three room semi - permanent house (iron sheet and timber) which belongs to them. They use firewood for cooking, paraffin lamp for lighting and they get water from the lake. Steven is healthy boy. He likes playing football. Due to the little income that is family earning, it is hard to meet basic family needs and paying school fees has become a big problem. That is why we decided to put him into our program that he could go to school. In 2023 he started 3rd year of Island of Hope Humanist School. Steven needs support of 2,400 CZK/100 EUR per term.
