Saika¬†is a young lady with big dreams. She is fifteen and lives in the village of Plasman near Galette Chambon. She lives with her mother, four sisters, and three brothers. She and her brothers and sisters know who their father is, but he does not associate with them because they are Christians and he is a voodoo priest. He left them when their mother became a Christian and started taking the children to church. Saika is happy that her mother made this brave decision because she loves her life now and she doesn’t want to live any other way. However, now that their father is gone, they have no source of income. Sometimes her mother can find houses to clean or clothes to wash to make some money, but it is never enough to feed the whole family. Saika and her siblings had to drop out of school when their father left because they could not afford it. That made her sad because she had just finished at Johel’s school and was about to move on to the BGM high school. Several of her siblings have been able to get sponsored, and Saika is praying that she will too. When she grows up, she wants to become a nurse so that she can help people who are sick. In her spare time, she likes to go to church, study various subjects while waiting to return to school, and hang out with friends.
