Elizer Geffrard is fifteen years old and his birthday is December 27th. He lives in the new village at Hope Center in Galette Chambon with his aunt and uncle and cousins. His parents were killed in the earthquake of 2010 and his Uncle Makil agreed to take him into the family and move out of the tent city. Elizer is very happy that he has a family and a new, safe place to live. The tent city was very scary. Elizer considers his cousins his brothers and sisters now. He has two brothers and four sisters. His favorite subject in school is social science and he loves to play soccer with the other kids of the village when he’s not in school. He also loves to help his uncle with garden projects. If he could be anything he wants to be, he would become President of Haiti one day.
