All donations (100% of your donations) are forwarded to the local ministries we support in Southern Africa, and allocated based on the needs and the urgency of the situations we are facing.
We have visibility and accountability on every ministry and project, including pictures, copies of local receipts, weekly calls and emails, and we visit the different areas regularly to meet with our local partners to better understand the local needs and some of the challenges they face.
We have no overhead, no office space, no staffing costs, and we operate out of our home, and have also maintained regular jobs (in the computer industry) to cover any operating expenses which we incur as part of this ministry. Our monthly membership fees and stewardship fees (5% of all donations received) with the United Evangelical Churches are covered out of our regular income as well as other related costs like international travel and related expenses (like this web site).
This approach makes every $ you give directly usable to support the local needs – 100% of it – and $1 in this part of the world has a much bigger impact than it would in other regions
