Chalanca is a loving, generous 12 year old who loves to laugh. She lives in the village of Galette Chambon and goes to Johel’s school with her three brothers and three sisters. She lives with her mother and father who work on the farm near their home. Two of Chalanca’s brothers and all of her sisters are sponsored, but she is not. She wishes she had a sponsor so she could enjoy getting a new uniform each year instead of her sister’s old one and she could be called to Hope Center for a gift from someone who lives in America who loves her and prays for her. She is not jealous of the children in the village who are sponsored though. She is happy that so many kids have sponsors. But she just wishes she had one too. Chalanca enjoys playing games with her friends and singing and doing housework with her sisters and mom. Her favorite subject is mathematics and when she grows up, she wants to be a nurse.
