Makendy Louis Juste
Makendys friends describe him as a good friend, reliable and honest.
Makendy’s dad has remarried and his mother lives far away from Arcahaie. Makendy is able to see her once a month. He has 2 brothers and 6 sisters. Makendy loves to play soccer. His favorite food is rice and bean sauce and fried plantains. He especially loves Evangelique music. Makendy's nickname is TonTon which means "Uncle".
Makendy is interested in agriculture and working with chickens. He is often found working in the garden. He would like to be a mechanic when he finishes school and enjoys working on the motorcycle with our staff so he can learn how to repair engines. Makendy is a "do anything" kind of guy.
Makendy has started the 8th grade and now that he has a sponsor we can buy him all the books he needs. When asked what sponsorship means to him, he said it will help him finish school, have access to training for skills that will ultimately help him find a job.
Makendy’s friends describe him as a good friend, reliable and honest. He also has a good sense of humor. He enjoys church but did not want to go because he did not have clothes to attend. We will now be able to buy him church clothing so that he can worship on Sundays.
