Jouvens is a comical little seven year old who loves to make people laugh. He lives with his grandmother and brother, Wenley, in the village of Dedal near Galette Chambon. His grandmother is unable to make much money besides the few items she sells at market each week. In the past, she has had to take her grandsons to market with her because she could not afford to pay for school, but it is very dangerous for children to go to the marketplace. She heard about the BGM Schools in Galette Chambon and decided she would enter her grandsons into the sponsorship program and seek a sponsor so that they could go to school and she could go to market without endangering their lives. His brother tested on the 4th grade level because he has always studied his friends’ school books and taught himself to read, so he was able to enter school only 2 years behind. Jouvens, however, has never learned more than how to write his name. His grandmother really wants both of them to go to school before they get any farther behind. Jouvens enjoys playing with friends, eating, sleeping, and learning how to read. His favorite thing to study is Kreyol. When he grows up, he wants to become a doctor.
