Sandia is a shy little five year old from the village of Galette Chambon. She lives with her parents, three sisters, and one brother. Her parents have no dependable source of income other than farming in the village. With draughts and hurricanes, it makes farming very difficult. Last year, her parents were able to sell a goat to pay for her school and her sister’s school, Their older sister actually has a sponsor and their baby brother is not old enough for school yet. Her parents believe that if Sandia and her sister Franchesca could both find sponsors, it would relieve a huge financial pressure on the family and the girls would not have to worry about whether or not they would be able to go to school from one year to the next. Sandia loves to dance and sing and play with with her friends. She is not sure what she wants to be when she grows up, but she thinks that being a doctor would be pretty cool.
