Yair lives with his mother and his two brothers in a two-room wooden house in Santiago, Chile. He is in grade three at Sotero Del Rio School and his best subject is Math. His favourite activities are drawing and playing ping-pong. Yair would like to become a firefighter when he grows up. 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.
