Erodson is a bright and determined sixteen year old from the village Gros Balancé near Galette Chambon. He lives with his his parents, sister, and four brothers. His mother doesn’t work and his father is a farmer in the village. Farming in the village, especially Gros Balancé where there’s not a good water source, does not produce much income. It is hard to support a family of eight much less send all of the children to school. Having sponsors for their children is a huge help for this family. So far all of the children in the family have sponsors except for Erodson. He has managed to go to school most years, but there have been a couple of years when his father was not able to come up with the money to pay for his school, so he had to sit out. Even when he has had to sit out, though, Erodson has continued studying his books so that he doesn’t get too far behind. He refuses to give up on his dream of one day becoming a surgeon. He not only wants a job that will help people, but he wants to prove to his village that God can make a way for you to be anything you want to be as long as you work hard and keep your faith in Him. Erodson loves to study his school lessons, play soccer with friends, and attend church with his family. His favorite subject in school is Science, and when he grows up he wants to become an orthopedic surgeon.

**Please note that each year, we depend on village volunteers whose understanding of the measuring process may create variations in accuracy. Often times, children do not know their age or birthday, and sometimes they measure smaller or larger because of illness. We do the best we can to give accurate updates, but there are cultural constraints that we cannot avoid. Also, these measurements were made in March of 2022. The child may or may not have promoted to the next grade by the 2022-2023 school year. Final exams had not been taken when the update was made. You can assume that the child will move on to the next grade up, but it is not guaranteed. Thank you for your understanding.
