She is in the grade eight special education class at El Alba Special School and her best subject is Math. Licaraye faces intellectual challenges, but works very hard in school. She loves watching cartoons and dancing. At the Santiago Sponsor Site, sponsored families are organized in small community groups that receive funds for basic needs such as food, medical care, and school supplies. As well, the site organizes training for families to develop skills to become self-sufficient.
