Birthday: November 21, 2010 Sponsorship #: 2018-00-102S


Steevenson is an energetic ten year old in the Maranatha school who is eager to be able to go to school. His brother is also looking for a sponsor. His brother’s name is Djemsley. They live with their mother, father, and three sisters in the village of Galette Chambon. Their father is a mason, and he finds work when he can get hired on a construction crew. This kind of work is not reliable, so he can’t always provide for his family. Their mother sells things in the market when she can afford goods to sell. They often have to choose between eating and taking care of Djemsley’s medical needs because he has Sickle Cell Anemia. Steevenson’s mother has asked that both of her boys be put in the sponsorship program to relieve some of the financial burden from their family. She would like for Steevenson to be sponsored before Djemsley just because Djemsley has to miss school so much when he is sick. Steevenson absolutely LOVES school when he gets to go. He is only in first grade right now because his parents could not afford to send him to school when he was younger. He practices writing his name and numbers and alphabet all the time so that when he is able to get into school, he can test up to a higher grade. He wants desperately to find a sponsor so that he can get on with school and make his dreams of becoming an engineer come true one day.
