Description of the situation: Ismael was born in 2015 and he lives with his mother and siblings (Eliazaro 2004, Morning 2007, Victorine 2010 and Happiness 2017). The father who was the only family breadwinner died leaving the mother with her in-laws. But they did not want her. She ended up in a fishing beach where she now lives with her children, she sells fish and the income she gets is not enough to pay the rent and school fees to the children. However much she is trying, she still cannot manage it. Family´s average is 1230 KES per month – about 12 EUR. The family (which has 7 members altogether) lives in rental 1-roomed semi-permanent house at a fishing beach. They get water from the lake, uses firewood or charcoal for cooking and candles for lighting or get energy from little solar panel. Ismael is doing health wise well. The boy likes playing football, singing and swimming. In 2024 he is in 3rd class of primary school Island of Hope Humanist School but now he lost his sponsor. Ismael needs support of 2,400 CZK/100 EUR per term. Will you help him to study?
