Erodeson is a bright and visionary thirteen year old from the village of Gwo Balanse near Galette Chambon. He lives with his father, one sister, and five brothers. This family is in GREAT need of help sending the kids to school. His father grows and sells papayas, but he does not make enough money to send all of the children to school. It makes him so sad to see crops burn up every year in his village when the people depend so heavily on agriculture. Erodeson’s dream is not only to be an agriculture specialist, but he dreams of helping his village improve the way they irrigate and grow their crops so that they can be more successful. He wants to one day see all of his brothers and sisters able to attend school and see their dreams come true too. He is very thankful for the opportunity to have help with school.
