Emmanuel  was our first child. At just one week old was abandoned in Mathare slum next to an open sewer.

He is now a very big boy. He can roll over and had a very beautiful smile.


our little baby has grown into a big boy. He is not 1.5 and the biggest and boldest of all the babys despite being a good 6m younger than some. He gets very cranky when he wakes up and is not given food immediately. He can remain stern faced for long periods and then after food break into a huge smile and spend the rest of the day laughing and giggling. Being the first born into the home he feels insanely entitled and will cry to be held with out stopping. When he is sick  there is no way out other than to strap him to your back for almost the whole day.


UPDATE August 2017 now 4 years old. He is a serious child and very sensitive. He likes school and loves to sing.
