Complete: Emergency Education Project for Cheska (17) of the Philippines: $1,452 Raised! THANK YOU!

*We only have until the first week of May to meet our goal! Please help this bright young woman achieve her dreams and be able to attend University. Cheska (17) of the Philippines has a dream of pursuing higher education so that she can earn a four year college degree in Financial Management to help lift herself and her family out of poverty. This project aims to raise one semester’s tuition and other costs to help make that dream become a reality.

Cheska is an extremely driven young woman who excels in sports and academics. We aim to raise a total of $1,109 to purchase the following items: tuition, school uniform, supplies, books, meals, fees, and transportation. The funds must be raised by early May 1, 2015 in order for Cheska to begin in June, 2015. All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible and 100% of donations go to our projects.
