Birthday: August 10, 2003 Sponsorship #: 2017-00-125M


Kellin is a bright twenty year old from the village of Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother who is disabled. Kellin doesn’t have any siblings. 8 years ago, his mother cut her hand really bad with a machete in the garden and soon she developed an infection that was so bad that she had to have her hand removed. After this happened, Kellin decided to sit out of school so he could help his mother recover and learn to adjust to not having her hand. She still tries to work as a farmer and sells the produce she grows, but it is very difficult for her. Kellin gets up very early every morning and goes to the well to draw water for his mother and then he cooks breakfast for them. Then he goes to the garden and helps his mother harvest any produce she can sell at market. He also helps her take the produce to market to sell, but in 2017, he got a sponsor and started going to school in the afternoons, so he asked his aunt if she would help his mother at market once he started school and she said that she would. He has done very well in school over the last six years with sponsorship. As a matter fact, he has reached the 12th grade! That means he only has one year left before he can graduate (Haiti has 13 grades). Ketlin desperately needs a new sponsor so that he can continue school and graduate.  In his free time, Kellin enjoys playing soccer, going to an English class in his village, eating, sleeping, and studying math. When he grows up, he wants to become a doctor.
