The Kibera Kings

Mr.Shawn Bughes an American citizen on his tour to the mighty aclaimed,recognised,acknowledged and named Kibera slums,was deeply disturbed in his heart.Not because of the shanty dwellings but of the fingers of a nesty child stretching out like the paying mantis appendages asking for a shilling for lunch.This not only disturbed him but forced him to do something he recently came back and founded the Kibera King Association. He decided to get the Kibera Orphans and street kids from beggers to kings. He came built a school to take up the boys.He arranges for their school fees,meals and other needs.He has sponsored over thirty boys through their primary &Secondary school and others are still schooling.What a Vision.
