Mael is a seven year old boy from the little village of Sennfra near Galette Chambon. He has one sister and they live with their mother who does not have a full time job. She does sometimes help her mother sell things from their garden in the local market, but they usually only make enough money to buy food for their family and that isn’t always enough. Mael loves to play soccer with his friends and he also loves to play music. He likes the drums and he wants to learn how to play the guitar. His cousin has a guitar and sometimes he lets Mael play with it. Mael was allowed to go to school this year because we agreed to put him in the sponsorship program. He will only be allowed to continue school next year if he finds a sponsor. This year he has discovered that he enjoys a class called Social Science and he is hoping that he can continue to learn next year. When he grows up, he wants to become a musician.
