Chimchai (pronounced “Shem-shy”) is a bright ten year old from the village of Placeman near Galette Chambon. He lives with his parents, three sisters, and two brothers. His parents do not have any consistent source of income. In an effort to get more children in the village in school, we have allowed Chimchai to start school this year in hopes that we can find him a sponsor. He is so very smart, and he hasn’t been able to go to school for the past two years because his parents couldn’t afford it. We just don’t want him to get behind and we want him to be able to eat, so we are hoping to find him a sponsor. Chimchai has managed to stay on grade level because he has studied his brothers’ books and they have helped him. Both of his brothers are sponsored. So he was able to start back to school this year without missing a beat. His favorite thing to do when he is not in school is to play soccer and study with his brothers. When he grows up, he wants to become a doctor.
