Meet our featured donor, Manikandan N. of the USA

Manikandan is an amazing Aura’s House supporter who believes strongly in the value of education. Through Children International, he sponsors five children who live in India, the Philippines and Latin America. Aura’s House is specifically interested in why education means so much to Manikandan and he was kind enough to write with his thoughts.

Manikandan writes:

“I come from India and I have seen poverty at close range and what it can do to you. I did not have the guts or the means to help people in poverty then. I am just doing my part now. Education projects will always be close to my heart because I strongly believe no one should be deprived of an education or of knowledge. Schools are the stepping stone to gaining that knowledge. I am definitely where I am now because of the education that I received.ย  This would not have been possible if someone had not funded my education. While my college life itself was in doubt, my sister had to sacrifice her studies. My relatives, friends and everyone around me contributed so that I can finish my education. I will never forget the uncertainty it put me through and I want to make sure I help as many people as possible through educational projects.ย  I so hope that together we can definitely make a big difference in the lives of many.”

    Fantastic point! I completely agree. I was raised in the United States where there is welfare and other assistance, but I still remember coming home to no power or no water because my mom couldn’t afford the bill (yeah, fun when you need to go to the bathroom and the toilet doesn’t flush – especially when they shut it off on Friday and it’s off all weekend). I have a college education now and a fairly decent income and I credit that difference to an education, amongst a few other things.

    Thanks so much for your generosity for education projects!It truly does make a huge difference for kids!
