Venal is a bright thirteen year old from the village of Plasman near Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother, father, two sisters, and four brothers. The family doesn’t really have a source of income other then share cropping on a local farm. They once tried to raise some goats, but someone stole them and they were never able to afford to buy any more. Venal loves to play with his friends, eat, study his lessons, and go to church with his family. His favorite subject in school is French. When he grows up, he wants to either be a truck driver or a doctor. When asked what he loves about his country, he said that he loves the mountains, and he loves his village. He loves how Haiti is a small country with water all around, and he loves how God brought BGM to his village to help the children go to school. He knows that his country needs a lot of help because so many people live in miserable conditions, but he is hopeful that all of that is going to change one day as more and more children are able to go to school.
