In a community where parents are just casual worker that due to their little wages they can't cater for the family needs that different organisation do help to play some rolls for instance buying uniforms for students. The saint mary's sisters home played a greater role to cloth thousand of student living in the kibera slums.Most parents in kibera can only afford food staff for their families hence only basic wants but the secondary wants for instance education is very hard for such parents to manage. Most the children who have been schooling in kibera got free school uniforms from the saint mary hence giving thousands of young student to have the chance to learn like any other student in the society.
