We aim to run a program of the highest quality by using best practices from around the world. We have a skilled, educated and experienced Board who bring knowledge and expertise in the areas of operations, accounts, compliance, training, psychosocial care, and development.
We involve the children (beneficiaries) in almost all aspects of our project. We have pioneered a unique system in which the children have elected their own leaders “ministers” from amongst themselves. These leaders then work with the staff to manage various areas of the project (e.g. Healthcare, Education, Sports and Culture etc.) This instills a strong sense of ownership of the project by the children and has been very successful
We have several systems in place to ensure that we are transparent and accountable. We have a dedicated and qualified accountant who prepares monthly reports. We are audited both internally (every quarter) and externally (once per year). In addition to this, we send customized, detailed reports to our donors as required detailing exactly how their funds were utilized.
We believe that the best way to help the children is by giving them opportunities to become self-sufficient. This is why a strong component of our program is focused on education and/or vocational training. Finally we equip them with life-skills so that they are in a strong position to get jobs or start their own businesses.
