Nsenzeni (9)

Tutorial Household Needs Project for Nsenzeni (9) – Zambia

Launched January 18, 2011. Completed March 13, 2012.

Daniela (8)

School Supplies and Income Generation Project for Daniela (8) – The Philippines

Launched December 21, 2011. Completed January 13, 2012.

Daniela lives with her parents and three siblings in one multi-use room in the poorest areas of Manila, the Philippines. Their home has a corrugated metal roof and they use water from a neighbor’s faucet. The family’s income has recently dropped to a mere $70 per month.

Abraham (8)

Medical and Income Generation Project for Abraham – Honduras

Launched September 27, 2011. Completed January 13, 2012.

Abraham (8) is facing severe malnutrition due to his family’s lack of income. Abraham’s father abandoned his family, leaving Floridalma, Abraham’s mother, to raise seven children on her own. It would greatly help the family if they were provided with vitamins, supplements and food for Abraham to improve in his health. Also this project aims to purchase items to sell in the store that would increase the family’s income and help Abraham’s mother to provide for her seven children.

Jeinny (7)

Tuition Project for Jeinny Nicole – Honduras

Launched November 9, 2011. Completed December 16, 2011.

Jeinny (7) lives in one of the poorest neighborhoods of San Pedro Sula, Honduras with her mother, stepfather and four siblings. Unfortunately, due to her family’s lack of income, they are unable to send Jeinny to school. The school fees are totaling $230 per school year.


Room Construction Household Needs Project for Dora – Guatemala

Launched November 9, 2011. Completed December 5, 2011.

Dora (8) lives with her parents and four brothers and sisters in a small home built of mud walls, corrugated metal roofing, and a dirt floor. Her father, Rufino, works as a daily laborer, earning about $91 per month. Dora and her family would benefit greatly from household items to make their home more liveable. We aimed to raise $500 to purchase the following gifts: a double bed, a wardrobe, clothing, shoes, food, and cleaning supplies.

Evelyn and Francisco

Room Construction Project for Evelyn and Francisco – Colombia

Launched: September 2, 2011 Completed November 11, 2011.

Evelyn (11) and her brother Francisco (8) of Colombia live with an extended family of thirteen members in very cramped quarters. Their home consists of one multi-use room, which is made of brick walls with a zinc metal roof and a dirt floor. A sturdy all purpose room and a decent concrete floor for Evelyn and Pancho’s family would improve matters considerably and give them much more comfort and privacy.

Little Rock Mentees

USA Education Project -Mentor Resource Library – Little Rock, AR.

Launched: May 12, 2011.Completed: October 28, 2011.

This is Aura’s House’s very first project to benefit children in the USA. We aimed to raise $500 to help create a Mentor Resource Library for UALR Children International in Little Rock, Arkansas.

Christopher (8)

Tuition Project For Christopher and Judy – Zambia

Launched: September 1, 2011. Completed: September 16, 2011.

Christopher (8) and his sister, Judy, (7) are orphans from Zambia and they are being raised by their aunt who has her own family. They live in extreme poverty and their aunt is unable to send Christopher and Judy to school. The fees for each child are $36 per semester with three semesters per school year totaling $108 per child. The funds were needed no later than mid-December 2011 to ensure that they reach Zambia in time for enrollment. We raised $288 for tuition, uniforms, socks, text books, and book bags.

Marfel (8)

Launched: August 8, 2011. Completed: August 30, 2011.

Marfel (8) of the Philippines could benefit from a steady income that a food selling business could bring to her family. Marfel’s mother sells balut and penoy from her home and makes a small profit each month (they are both duck egg Philipino specialties). She currently buys her eggs from a supplier, and would like to expand this business. When the father gets home from work he too helps with selling the eggs. Usually, they are able to sell 50 pieces a day with a gain of 14 cents per piece. We aimed to raise $280 for eggs, baskets, containers, and charcoal.

Jenelyn (4)

Launched: April 26, 2011. Completed: August 29, 2011.

Jenelyn lives with her parents and four siblings in a rented house in the Philippines. The family’s income is a mere $53 a month. (* As of July 16, 2011 we now know it is only $20 a month.) Aura’s House plans to enable Jenelyn’s family to generate income by selling goods from a push cart. We aimed to raise $750 for the following items: a mattress, rice, clothing, groceries, a cart with tarp, a washing machine, schooling costs, and 2 months share of the electric bill.
