The village of this website’s namesake, Aura Yesenia Solis Hernandez has a local elementary school in need of a potable water supply. They have no running water, which makes it very difficult for the children to remain in class all morning. The teachers have to ask their students to bring water from home in order to use the bathroom and wash their hands.
The school needs a plumbing system to be built and safe water storage. The approximate cost of the running water project is $1,000 and would take approximately two months to complete. The school also is in dire need of books and learning materials, especially for the kindergarten and first grade. We aim to raise $1,520 for a plumbing system and learning materials such as crayons, paper, books, and coloring books. All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible and 100% of donations go to our projects and the communities served.
