Description of the situation: Austine lives with his parents and siblings Joyness (2017) and Fabreziah (2018). The father is fisherman while the mother sells fish. Family has only around 500 KES/5 EUR per month. The family lives in one room mud house which is rented. They use firewood for cooking, electricity for lighting and they get water from the lake. Austine is healthy boy. He likes playing football. In 2020 he should start to attend kindergarten. 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.Austine needs support of 2,400 CZK/100 EUR per term.
