DJouby is a kind eleven year old boy from Galette Chambon who lives with his grandparents, one sister, and one brother. His grandparents are not in good enough health to work, so they depend on the help of other family members to eat. His grandfather sold a goat to pay for Djouby’s tuition at the beginning of the year, but his health just prevents him from being able to do more to help Djouby. Djouby’s favorite subject is mathematics, and he wants to become a math teacher when he grows up. His favorite things to do are go to school, take a shower, and study his lessons.
