If you have been to Haiti with us on one of our trips, you undoubtedly remember Dayson Chery.
Dayson is a stand-out kid with a magnetic personality. After just spending minutes with him, you know there is something special about this young man. He takes life by the horns and chases hard after it. You get the sense that deep in his being, he wants the best for himself so that he can give his best to his community.
Dayson came to know the Maranatha House Orphanage as home when he was just one year old, in 2003. He comes from a large family, that unfortunately could not financially take care of him or many of his siblings. Two of his older siblings, Danielo & Daniela, are a part of the Transitions Program. And two other siblings, Medana and Jherry, live with him at the Maranatha House.
Dayson is a natural leader. He is intentional about taking advantage of the after-school programs made available to him and is learning computer science, as well as English. His English skills are quite good. Last month, while a team was visiting, Dayson tried his hand at translating for our Orphanage Director to the group. While he's not quite ready to pursue this full time, it was so encouraging to see him willing to try. Confidence is something he does not lack!
Among his peers, he has been nominated as the lead boy for his dorm and guides the other boys in activities to keep the house clean and working in the community. He dreams of becoming a pilot one day and enjoys painting. Dayson had a pivotal role in leading the youth to paint the community mural that is on the exterior wall of the orphanage. As a 7th grader, he does well in school and is known for his confidence and leadership skills. In school, he enjoys learning about Haitian and world history.
Our goal is to provide the support and services Dayson, and the rest of his peers need to THRIVE! We want to foster his leadership potential and encourage him to be the influencer his family, community, and country need.
Dayson needs 3 more sponsors at $35/mo.
