Description of the situation: Billy is the third born in the family of four children: Clifford (2006) is the oldest, Belinder (2008), Joshua (2014) is the youngest. Father who was the only family bread winner was jailed because he defiled his own daughter and will only be released in 2030.The father is also a drunkard and after drinking he usually beated the mother and children and chase them away from home forcing them to find a place for sleeping. Now the children are under the care of their mother who only sells tomatoes along the road in-order to provide for the family basic needs. The income the mother gets from her business/work is very little (average monthly net income 1600 KES) hence asking for support. The family is doing well except the first and last born child in the family is having sickle anemia. They live in a mud house which belongs to family. There are five dependents in the family; the house has two rooms. They use firewood for cooking, Kerosene/Solar for lighting, get water from lake. Billy is doing well health wise at present. Billy likes reading story books, playing football. Billy likes Science, Agriculture and Home science. Billy would like to be an electrician after school. From January 2024 the boy should move to the orphanage and start studying 6th grade at Island of Hope Humanist School. His support costs 16,800 CZK/660 EUR per year (1400 CZK/55 EUR per month).

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.
