Kendia is a precious ten year old from the village of Gwo Balanse near Galette Chambon who has a smile that will light up a room. She lives with her mother and father and three sisters and three brothers. Two of her sisters are sponsored and al three of her brothers are sponsored, so she is the only one in the family that doesn’t have a sponsor yet. This year she was going to school, but because she didn’t find a sponsor, she was told she had to leave. That made her very sad because all of her siblings have sponsors and are able to still go to school. Her parents don’t have jobs because her mother is disabled and her father is a mason and has not been able to find work. Kendia says that she would love to learn how to ride a bike one day and that her favorite thing ever to do is SING! She wants to be a musician one day. She would also like to learn how to sew so that if she doesn’t make enough money singing, she can sew for a living. She’s a little girl with big dreams that needs a sponsor.
