Many parents come to us every year to ask us to enroll their children in the foundation Fontana D'Haiti School, as the school is free. Sometimes even the purchase of the school uniform becomes a burden for these parents, as their means do not allow it. Archille, a 9 year old boy, is part of this group.
He is a calm, respectful, well-rounded child who likes to help with household chores and especially to play football with his friends. He is in his third year of basic education and his dream is to become a great doctor. We hope to help him in his learning as much as we can, as we do with others. He is in perfect health.
There are not many in his family, two children and the parents. The father is a fisherman, and the mother sells cosmetics, sometimes she sells the fish that her husband brings back from fishing. Their meager income does not help them much. In short, listening to this child's story about the precariousness of their economic situation, we decided to include him in the program.
