The mother takes care of her family and does the house chores. They receive benefits from a government aid program. The family's monthly income is approximately less than U.S. $115.00. They have serious problems to cover all their most urgent needs. They belong to the Purepechas ethnic group and they speak their dialect and Spanish. The house consists of one single room, a kitchen, and a latrine. It is made of wood and it has no drainage. Their furniture is in poor conditions and their daily meals are not well balanced due to the lack of resources.

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.
