Birthday: MARCH 23, 2003 Sponsorship #: 2022-00-030M

BINJAMIN is a bright nineteen year old who recently moved to Hope Center Village to escape the gang violence in the city. He and his parents moved in with his aunt and uncle. His mother doesn’t have a job and his father is a brick mason who sometimes can find work but it’s not guaranteed. When Binjamin left Port au Prince, he was going to a public school in the city. This is supposed to be his 12th grade year, but he is afraid that his parents are not going to be able to afford tuition to send him to school. He doesn’t want to get behind, so he is asking to be in the sponsorship program. Binjamin enjoys playing music and he has taught himself how to play guitar, piano, and drums. His favorite is the drums. His favorite subject in school is Chemistry and when he grows up he wants to become an engineer.
