Description of the situation: James was born in April of 2003. James is the oldest of six children in his family. He has four sisters - Pamella, Jesca, Terry and Marry as well as a little brother John. Their father is a security guard in a secondary school, and their mother does peasant farming, their family income is about 12.000 Ksh (120 EUR). The family lives in a mud house that has only four rooms. They get water from the river, use firewood for cooking and kerosene for lighting. Overall health of the family is good, James struggles with allergies. James enjoys playing football and reading. Academically, he enjoys his physics, chemistry and biology courses and hopes to become an airplane engineer. In 2022 James will be entering his fourth year at our Island of Hope Humanist Mixed Boarding Secondary school. With so many siblings that have yet to go to school and continue their education it is hard for the family to find the money to send the children to school. James’s cost of attendance is 5.600 CZK/ 220 EUR per school term (16.800 CZK/ 660 EUR per year). Will you help James get an education?
