Adoption - Jelkings Laytone

Child number: 52994
Jelkings Laytone has been in adoption programme since year 2021 and he goes to school Island of Hope Humanist School.
City, quarter: Lambwe Samunyi
State: Kenya
Mother: Joyce Atieno Otieno, birth 1989, housewife
Father: Erick Otieno Maindi, birth 1985, sells fish
Description of the situation: Jelkings was born in 2016 as the fourth born in the family of four children, he has siblings Fabish (2006), Clinton (2009) and Seth (2013). The father does fishing while the mother is a housewife. The income the family gets is little to feed and also provide the basic needs in life to the family. Net family income is about 3.000 Ksh (30 EUR) per month. The family lives in a one room mud house, which they rent. They use candles for lighting, get water from the lake and use firewood or charcoal for cooking. Jelkings is healthy and he really loves to play football. Due to the little income it is hard for the family to meet basic needs and also to pay school fees. That is why we decided to put the boy into our program, so that he can go to school. In 2021 he is attending kindergarten. His adoption costs 2.400 CZK/ 100 EUR per school term. Will you help Jelkings to get an education?
