A: Our organization is a small size organization, where we all work on a volunteering basis. Not a single cent of the donations is used for administrative expenses, flights or any other expenses. Those are covered personally by our management board members, who pay from their own private pockets.
When we receive a donation for a certain project, we use it 100% for that particular project, we collect all related receipts and publish them along with proff photos and videos on which the name of the donor is to be seen on a „THANK YOU” poster caried by the beneficieries personally.
Additionally, we invite every donor to join us and be part of the whole process from the beginning till the end of the project, for which she/he is donating for. You may gladly contact us via e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
