My name is Dennis and I am 14 years old. I live with a guardian in the Kibera Slum after the death of both of my parents. My guardian works hard washing people’s clothes to earn enough money to support me and my siblings. We live in a single roomed house in the slum and it is very cramped. Each night I help with the cooking and cleaning, then I studies for a few hours before falling asleep.
Without a sponsorship, I know that a secondary education is out of reach. I would like to study hard and show my siblings that they can also achieve their dreams with hard work and determination.
I dream of becoming a civil engineer when I am older.
