Children in urgent need of sponsors

The following children listed below were chosen as top priority cases. Their level of need is based on familial income, mother’s ability to work, and their age.

Typical Houses of Mud (forefront) and Iron Sheet (background) in the Kibara Slum

The condition of living for the majority of these children includes a house made of iron sheet or mud walls with a dirt or cement floor. The houses normally do not have electricity nor are the houses owned by the family.

The children of the WEEP participants are prioritized for sponsorship because these women aren’t able to work while being required to come to class every day. As a priority of the WEEP program, we strive to relieve financial stresses of our women in order to develop their confidence and determination while in the program. One of the heaviest financial stresses these women face is putting their children through school.

Women who are extremely ill are too weak and normally bed ridden to work to support their family. Their children are also prioritized, especially young women. The young women, usually the first born begin to feel responsible for supporting their family. They normally drop out of school and search for work. Influence of other women around her lead her to the work of prostitution. Our goal is to prevent these young women from giving up on their education and respect for their bodies. We aim to find them boarding schools where they will be protected from the negative influences in the slum.

Fifteen children are chosen at a time to be displayed here on the website, while our database of OVCs consists of over 200 children. We work hard to find each one a sponsor before moving onto the next child. If you have a special request concerning a child you are interested in sponsoring that may not be listed here, please send us an email.

Within each profile you will find a picture of the child and a picture of their family. A profile consists of the child’s name, birth date, level of education, favorite color, hero, and ambition. A brief case history is also included within ever profile including their living situation at home and any important health conditions.
