Kenzare (pronounced “Ken-zar-uh”) is in K1 at our BGM Primary School. She lives with her mother and father, sister, and two brothers in the village of Galette Chambon. Her parents do not have a steady source of income, so they are very thankful that their other children have sponsors. Now that Kenzare is old enough to start school, they are praying that she, too will get a sponsor. Neither of Kenzare’s parents finished school when they were younger because their parents couldn’t afford it and there was no sponsor program then. They do not want Kenzare to get behind in school like they did when they were little, and they feel like she will have a better chance of staying in school if she has a sponsor. Kenzare enjoys playing with her friends, studying her siblings’ books, resting, and eating, She looks forward to learning mathematics in school because she loves numbers. She says that she likes numbers so much that she thinks that she wants to be a math teacher when she grows up!
