Areli belongs to a humble and needy family. The father works hard as a small scale farmer. The mother takes care of her family and does the house chores. The family's monthly income is approximately less than U.S. $192.00. It is really low and they have serious problems to cover all their most urgent needs. They belong to the Mazahuas ethnic group. They own their dwelling. It consists of one single room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. It is made of bricks with a galvanized sheet roof. It has no drainage and they fetch water from a well. Their furniture is in poor conditions and their daily meals are not well balanced due to the lack of resources. They very seldom eat meat or chicken. Areli is considered a healthy child and she has been vaccinated against the major childhood diseases. She is cheerful and playful. She tries to help at home, doing some chores, such as picking up her toys. She is attending the Early Child Development Program at the Project. Her brother's name is Alejandro.
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.
