Meet Widelin Sylvestre, Age 8

 

Widelin Sylvestre is 8 years old and attends Christ Vivant Primary School. He is in second grade and loves writing. Widelin, the youngest of 7 children, makes the long journey to school every school day along with three of his siblings. One of his brothers Renelson, is handicap. Renelson’s wheelchair broke last year and his family had to carry him to school. The children’s father is a farmer and doesn’t earn enough money to feed his family so he relies on the breakfast program at the school. There are days where the children don’t have anything to eat except for the egg sandwich. The boys know that education is important. Widelin dreams of becoming an agronomist when he grows up and maybe even working in Coronel at the iF Foundation Technical Center.
