Project Description

Marie* (1420)

Age: 13

Grade: 7th

After Marie’s father died more than six years ago, her mother sent her to live in restavek with an aunt. Though Marie now lives with her mother, she is at high-risk of being sent back into restavek because of their financial situation.

Marie lives far from school and gets up very early to arrive on time. Her advocate, Falange, describes her as a little shy but hopeful. Her favorite game is jumping rope and her faovorite colors are orange and green. When she grows up, Marie would like to become a nurse.
