Makenson is a determined eleven year old who lives with his father and three brothers in the village of Galette Chambon. They live in a dirt house and sleep on dirt floors, but that doesn’t keep them from working hard and dreaming big. They know that education is important, and their father was determined to make sure his boys went to school this year. He managed to save up enough money to register his boys and pay their materials fee, but they will not be able to continue school if they don’t get sponsors because they cannot pay the rest of tuition. They are just starting school in faith that God will provide someone to help them pay for school. Makenson is the oldest of the boys, and he loves to work in the garden with his father. He also loves to study his friends books and play with his brothers. As he grows up, he wants to learn everything he can possibly learn so that he can teach other children in school when he grows up.
