Priscilla's father, Cristobal, financially supports the education of her two children. One is studying to become a lawyer and the other is studying pedagogy. He also supports the education of a child in his community. This child comes from a family that doesn't have the resources to pay for an education, so Cristobal pays for his schooling.
Cristobal and Priscilla give work to two people with disabilities — one has down syndrome and the other has epilepsy. Cristobal feels proud to employ them and that he can provide them with dignified jobs in their communities.
