Learn more about Nyslin and see photos of her with her family.
Nyslin’s mother would like to raise chicks. She has had experience selling them in the past and has adequate room to raise them. This would be a good business for Nyslin’s family because her father is currently the only wage earner. It would give Nyslin’s mother a chance to earn an income without having to be away from her family. Currently, her father is the only wage earner and they have about $103 a month.
Nyslin is a real ray of sunshine. She is a cheerful girl with a happy attitude. She always ends her letters to her sponsor with kisses and hugs. Nyslin’s brother Marvin writes them for her. She clearly has a loving and supportive family. Nyslin’s family consists of her father, Carlos, and mother ,Vicenta, with siblings ,Marvin (9), Carlos (3), and Miriam (10). Carlos and Miriam do not have sponsors.
If Nyslin’s mother could start a chicken farm, the income generated would lift financial burdens from her family.
In order for Vicenta to start a chicken farm, she would need the following supplies:
150 doses of vaccines
5 water troughs
20 quintals of concentrate

Below is an excerpt from Stephanie’s writings on her Aura’s House projects:
“My family has been sponsoring through Children International for a little over a year now. We sponsor seventeen children in five countries. It has been wonderful to build a personal relationship with all of our sponsor children and we always look forward to their letters and photographs…
…I know from experience that Income Generating Projects are extremely helpful to these families. In many cases their income will increase dramatically. It makes a huge difference in their daily welfare as well as their ability to save money and plan for the long term. It offers them hope for the future and the ability to work towards their goals. Sponsoring so many children, I am financially unable to fund every project by myself and that’s why I am so grateful to Aura’s House and to everyone who donates. Thank you so much!”
