New Arrivals at the Future Stars School
Over the Easter holiday, more children were identified who would benefit from the free primary education available at Future Stars. Of course, there are many more within Kibera who are in need but we do have limited capacity. Those who attend the school are some of the most vulnerable children – often those who would otherwise have no opportunity to access an education. At Future Stars, these children can also benefit from the feeding programme, giving them guaranteed nutrition every day and relieving the pressure at home.
We can now introduce you to the first four children who have started attending school today.

Each of these boys is looking for a sponsor to support them through their education and childhood.
It is so important to get involved in these children’s lives as early as possible. With correct nutrition, healthcare, and support, they will have the best chance of a positive future. It is in these early years that a child can be severely disadvantaged by poverty. A lack of adequate nutrition can lead to stunted growth, weakened immune systems, and reduced cognitive development. These are things that can never be fully resolved, so it is very important to ensure each child has enough good food to eat and adequate healthcare.
The background stories of each of these boys will soon be available, and they will be added to the child sponsorship programme. Before that time, if you are interested in sponsoring one of the boys, please get in touch and we will ensure you receive more details as soon as they are available.
Could you be the special person who supports a child and ensures their development? Sponsorship costs just over £1 a day and makes a huge difference to the future of one of these vulnerable children.
