Name: Hubertine Nouantin
Birthday: December 30, 2002
Origin: Zoungbome, Katagon
Date of Arrival: December 2004
Hubertine is one of seven siblings. Her father died, while she was still very small, from an unknown sickness. The fatherless family was left without any means, and their mother had no income of her own. The NGO Arbre de vie was asked to help out. After a social survey it was decided that all children except for the oldest twin girls would be taken in at the orphanage in 2004. When their mother remarried, Hubertine, her twin brother Hubert and their oldest brother Clément returned to live with her and her new husband. After their mother died from a long illness in 2007, all seven siblings were taken in at Arbre de vie and live there all together with the other children in a large family.
Hubertine is now in 5th grade. She attends a Public Primary School in Sakété along with several of her Yedidja brothers and sisters. In her free time, Hubertine likes to play with her friends. She is full of energy, and has a sweet spirit even though she knows how to give some lip to a brother or sister that she thinks deserves it. Her best friend is Adjokè, but she is also very close to her twin brother Hubert.
