Dieubenson (pronounced “Dyoo-ben-son”) is in K2 at BGM’s Maranatha School in Galette Chambon.
Dieubenson is a five year old who lives in the village of Galette Chambon with his grandfather. His mother died shortly after he was born and his father is not present in his life. After his mother died, his grandfather became the sole person responsible for his care. It has been very hard for his grandfather because he is a farmer and works long hours. He has had to depend on the help of neighbors to care for Dieubenson while he works. He was glad when Dieubenson became old enough to start school because that would give his grandson something to do while he works in the garden and it would also provide a meal for him. This year, the principal allowed Dieubenson to go to school with a reduced tuition with the hopes of him getting a sponsorship by next school year. Dieubenson loves to play with his friends and his neighbor’s dog. He is excited that he is learning to write his name and learning to read. He doesn’t know what he wants to be when he grows up, but he thinks he might be able to help his grandfather farm.
