Walson is a loving and gentle six (almost seven) year old from the village of Cargo-Gwo Balanse near Galette Chambon. He lives with his mom, dad, sister, and brother. His parents work in the local garden as share croppers. They have been able to afford Walson’s school in the past, but now that his two siblings are old enough to go to school, they cannot afford all three. Walson LOVES school, and he is so afraid that he may not be able to continue because his parents may have to make the children take turns going to school. He would love to have a sponsor so that he doesn’t have to worry about whether or not he can go. His favorite subject is French, and when is not in school, he loves to work in the garden with his parents. When he grows up, he wants to be a farmer just like his dad.
