Johnny is a bright little nine year old boy who comes from the tiny village of Barye Bouzy near the village of Galette Chambon. This year his brother and sister were able to find sponsors, so the director of the school told his mother that he could attend as well as long as we tried to find him a sponsor. His brother is Daniel and his sister is Lovencia. He has two older step-brothers who do not live with them. Daniel’s father works as a mason whenever he can find a construction job in the village, and his mother stays at home with the children. They do not make much money, but they are a very close and happy family. They feel very blessed to have found sponsors for two of their children and they are praying Johnny will find one soon as well. Johnny says that he loves his Kreyole class because he knows it well. He says that when he grows up, he wants to become an engineer and start his own construction company so he can work with his dad.
