Arcenia Precosa is an intelligent and hard-working girl who lives only with her mother Preciosa Filisberto in a self-built house with reed walls, a thatched roof and dirt floor. The house is not in a good situation due to the local material they used to build it. She studies and her favorite subject is Portuguese. She would like to be a teacher in future to teach the children from her community. She likes helping her family with the chores around the house such as sweeping the yard and washing the dishes. On her spare time, she likes making dolls along with her friends. This family is really desperate. They depend on family agriculture and sometimes run animals business for living. They grow cassavas, peanuts and maize but they almost produce nothing due to the lack of rain. Their income is very low therefore they only have two meals per day. The family is registered in the program because they need a help.
It’s a great way to create a bond between someone who’s
special to you and a child who will welcome his or her friendship and support.
