Francillion is twelve years old and he lives in the village of Gros Balance near Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother, two sisters, and four brothers. Their father died three years ago and left them with no source of income. They sold what livestock they had to pay for his 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. Francillion and his brothers all had to stop going to school after their father died because they could not afford it. Now that BGM has a school sponsorship program, Francillion is hoping that he and his brothers can find sponsors and continue going to school every day. Francillion’s favorite subject is French and he grows up he wants to go to college to study Political Science and become President of Haiti. In his free time Francillion likes to play soccer with his friends.
