Tristan is the oldest boy in a family of 2 children. He says he is lucky to be among the sponsored or beneficiaries in this school breakfast program.
In terms of physical and mental health, apparently, Tristan at the beginning shows a good physical and mental motricity.
Many Haitian families are single parents, and most often mothers are the only ones raising children in the absence of fathers. Thus, little is known about Tristan's family history, but according to his confidences to the social worker, his parents make a lot of sacrifices for him to send him to school and that, the Holt School Breakfast Program is a blessing for him and his parents.
