Zakaat for illegitimate child


A Muslim woman has a child from a christian man out of wedlock. The child is now 8 years of age. This child is now in the custody of the father as the mother is not prepared to take care of the child. The father is prepared to send the child to Muslim School to continue with her education but cannot afford to do so. Is this child eligible for Zakaat? Who is the Wali of this child since the father is Christian?
