Adoption - Derine Gift

Child number: 52957
Not adopted
City, quarter: Dhiwa Wachara
State: Kenya
Mother: Jacky Tracy Odhiambo, birth 1992, housewife
Father: Bernard Odhiambo, birth 1986, fisherman
Description of the situation: Derine was born in 2016 as the third born in a family of three children (siblings Millan and Griffins). The father does fishing whereas the mother sometimes works as a general labourer at the lakeshore when opportunity is available. The rest of the time she is taking care of children. Net family income is about 6.000 Ksh a month (60 EUR), which is unfortunately not enough to cover all family costs and school fees. The family lives in a one roomed semi-permanent house which they rent. They use solar chargeable light for lighting, get water from the lake and also use firewood/ charcoal for cooking. Derine is healthy except for a small eye problem. He likes riding toy cars, which is his favourite game. In 2021 he will attend kindergarten. His adoption costs 2.400 CZK/ 100 EUR per school term.

The project of remote support „Adoptions of African children“ mediates an access to education for poor Kenyan children without pulling them out of their natural environment and community. This project has been running since 2002 and has helped more than 3500 children. School fees at primary school are CZK 7200 (€300) / year, and at secondary school, college and orphanage are CZK 16800 (€660). The payment can also be broken down into multiple instalments.

Section of detailed information provides an overview of how this projects works. In case you have already chosen a child from our database, you can also find here all the steps to be taken in order to adopt a child remotely.

You can also provide the adoptive children by health insurance, that covers any medical treatment the child needs during 1 year.
