Chednika is a shy little three year old from the village of Dal Gros who lives with her mama and five sisters. She is the youngest of the six girls. Their father died last year and Director Salomon gave her mother a job as a cook at the school afterwards. Although mama is very happy to have a job, she doesn’t make enough to support six children in school. Most of Chednika’s sisters are sponsored already, but Chednika needs a sponsor too so that the money her mama makes as a cook can be used to take care of the family.
