Marcelo lives with his mother and his sister in a one-room stone house in Jeremie, southern Haiti. He is in grade three at Montessori Ste. Terese School and his best subject is his native language, Creole. He loves riding his bike. At home, he helps by washing the dishes. Marcelo would like to become a doctor when he grows up. Education is very difficult to obtain in Haiti because of the extreme poverty of the people. Sponsorship provides educational support, including school materials, books and fees, so that children can attend school regularly and get a good education. Sponsorship also provides children with improved nutritional intake and other basic needs.
