Bertine is a precious little 6 year old from the village of Galette Chambon who loves playing tic-tac-toe and other games with her friends. She has two brothers and two sisters who live with her and their mother and father. Her parents work in the garden and try to sell whatever vegetables they can grow to feed their family. It is not enough to pay for necessities and school too. Bertine wants to go to school with her brothers and sisters, but she cannot go without a sponsor. She loves to color and she hopes that one day when she can go to school she will get to color there. Her favorite thing about life in Haiti is going to church. She loves to sing and she loves to learn about Jesus.
