Waschington is a lively little six year old from the village of Galette Chambon. He lives with his mother and father, two brothers, and two sisters. His parents are farmers in the village and their crops often get burned up from drought. They struggle to feed their family much less send their children to school. They were fortunate to be able to pay Waschington’s first tuition installment, but they just never know if they next one will come due and they have to choose between his school and feeding their family. They wish so much that he had a sponsor so that they could care for their family without worrying about whether or not they have to have a hard conversation with their son about paying for school. Waschington loves to play with his friends, eat, study his lessons, go to church, and sleep. His favorite subject in school is Creole. When he grows up, he wants to become a big doctor and perform operations on people.
