Jamesley is a a bright thirteen year old from the village of Galette Chambon who lives with his aunt, four brothers, and two sisters. His aunt took him and his siblings in after their mother died in October. She works as a vendor at market, but she does not make enough money to feed the children and send them all to school. His mother had just paid the first deposit for his school in October before she died. He has been able to go to school on that for the last few months, but his aunt needs help with a sponsorship to help pay for the rest of his school. She wants desperately for the children to be able to continue going to school, but she knows she cannot pay for it. Jamesley enjoys studying and working in the garden. His favorite subject is French, and when he grows up, he wants to be a computer specialist.
