Dorval

Dorval lives in a small house with his mother who is a teacher, but she doesn't make enough money to support his studies.

He is committed to pursuing a good career in his...

Marie Ween Flore

Marie Ween Flore is a happy, fun-loving child who lives with her mother and sister, and her favorite pastime is to dress and play with her dolls.

Jameson has not led an easy life. His mother died during his birth, and he now lives with his godparents in a small two-room house in Jérémie. In spite of the many obstacles he has faced, he remains positive, and he is actively pursuing his goals.
