Complete: Emergency Income Generation Project for Parveen (6) of Delhi, India: $1,000 Raised. THANK YOU!

Parveen (6) lives in a one room home with a mud floor, and plastic sheeting walls with her parents and her seven siblings. Her father is too ill to work so the family lives off of Parveen’s mothers income which totals $120 per month.

At the moment, Parveen through no fault of her own, lost her previous sponsor through Children International and is now even more vulnerable than when we first started planning this project.

All projects on the Aura’s House site are 100% US tax deductible and 100% of donations go to our projects and the families or communities they serve.

Complete: Clothing Shop Income Generating Project for Daniela (13) of the Dominican Republic: $552 Raised! Thank you!

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.
