Ricardinio is a bright eight year old from the area of Place Charles in Galette Chambon. He lives with his parents and two sisters. Her parents do not have a reliable source of income. His two sisters have sponsors in school, but Ricardinio has not yet found a sponsor. He desperately needs a sponsor so that he can continue going to school and have a guaranteed meal to eat for the day. There have been many days in the past when Ricardinio would not have had anything to eat at all if his sister had not brought home a little food from her lunch at school. He is so thankful that his sisters are sponsored, but he wishes very much that he could have one too so that his parents don’t have to worry about how he will go to school and how all of their children will eat. Ricardinio loves to study French and when he grows up, he wants to become a doctor.
