Mejinya is four years old. Her birthday is March 8. She lives with her grandmother in Galette Chambon who has no source of income. They depend on other family members to share food with them. She has been hoping that one day she could go to school like all of the other children in the village. Now she is finally old enough but grandmother can’t afford it. She says she wants to be able to cook like her grandmother when she grows up. Mejinya will be going to Professor Salomon’s school.
