Ogelet Joseph is nine years old and very shy. He was not very excited about having his picture taken, but he is very, very excited that he has a chance to go to school one day. He has never been able to go to school like the other kids in the village because his parents could not afford it. He lives in Galette Chambon with his mother and father. His father is a farmer and his mother is a cook, but lately his mother has not been able to sell her food because she has been sick and his father hasn’t made much money farming because there was no rain and the crops failed. Ogelet has three sisters and five brothers. His birthday is April 4th. His favorite subject is mathematics and when he grows up he wants to be a farmer just like his dad because his father is a very hard worker.
