Chrisyono is a spunky little six year old who lives in a village called Gros Balance near Galette Chambon with his mother, two sisters, and four brothers. Their father died when he was three and left them with no source of income. They sold what livestock they had to pay for their father’s funeral and then their mother began selling snacks as a vendor to try to raise a little money. It is not enough to support a family though. Chrisyono’s brothers all had to stop going to school after their father died because they could not afford it. Chrisyono has never been able to go to school because his father died just about the time he was to start school. Now that BGM has a school sponsorship program, Chrisyono is hoping that he and his brothers can find sponsors and continue going to school every day. He is most excited about the fact that they will get a meal every day at school because there are many days when his mother does not have any food for them to eat. In his free time Chrisyono enjoys playing with his friends and when he grows up he wants to become a pastor.
