Jairo is 12 and is the second child of three. He has a younger brother (7) and an older sister who is married and lives in another household. Jairo lives in the house of his 90 year-old maternal grandfather and three other family members in Aldea las Nubes 1. His father works away at the coast in the macadamia and coffee plantations and can only come home to visit his family once a week because it is too far. Both of his parents are working.
Jairo is in his fifth year of Elementary school in Aldea las Nubes 1. He especially enjoys math and communication and language. He loves to play soccer at home with his brother and dancing makes him feel happy. Jairo also helps a neighbor in a mechanics garage and although he is not paid for this, he enjoys all the new things that he is learning there.
Unfortunately, Jairo’s grandfather has a malignant hernia which causes him a great deal of pain which is difficult for Jairo to watch. He feels helpless because he cannot help him or have the money to make him better. Despite this, he did find happiness during 2020 when he played soccer at school with his friends once again. He feels that his best talent is having the ability to learn new things wherever he finds them.
