Regional Director of Asian programs
William Aura’s conscious dedication to global concerns has brought him over a dozen times to the Tibetan world. Witnessing the poverty of these simple but loving people, he made a promise to be a voice for the disadvantaged. His extraordinary video footage is featured in Rick Ray’s award winning film “10 Questions for the Dalai Lama.”
In 2002, he founded the Aura Imports Sponsorship Project to promote education for children in the Himalayan world. Their goals are achieved primarily through child sponsorship by uniting impoverished students with individual sponsors, giving them the tools and opportunities necessary for success.
His company, Aura Imports, is committed to promoting the social and economic progress of people in the region by marketing their handcrafts in a just and direct manner. Proceeds from the web site help over 100 deserving Tibetan and Nepali students.
Their goals are achieved by uniting impoverished students with individual sponsors, giving them the tools and opportunities necessary for success. Living under harsh economic conditions, too many bright young minds have no ability to receive an education, so they too might have a chance to raise themselves out of their condition and benefit others.
