Daniela’s family could benefit greatly from an income generating project so that their monthly income could increase. Currently, the family of seven lives off of only $100 a month.
Daniela’s mother has experience selling clothes and believes that they would be most successful in selling clothes and underwear form their home. With the income generated, Daniela’s family will be able to invest the profit of the business on more items and be able to sustain a better standard of living. We aim to raise $550 for underwear and fees.
All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible and 100% of donations go to the families.

If he owned his own sewing machine, he could work directly with clients and earn a higher monthly income for the family.
We aim to raise $915 for the following items: a sewing machine, an electric motor, wooden tools, bricks, cement, sand, stone chips, and labor. All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible.
