“I’d love to donate, but where’s the money really going?”    “Most of it’s going to the administration anyway!”    “I don’t know what to do with the money.”

Surely they know such or similar statements and suspect something similar? In view of the flood of requests for donations from all corners of the world, this is certainly understandable. For this reason, I try to take a different approach with my partner in Uganda, the director and founder of the school, Saad Luyinda.

We tell you exactly what your donation is for and what happens with your money. They themselves, no one else, decide what they want to spend their money on. How does it work – explained briefly and simply?

The person responsible on site in Uganda, school director Saad Luyinda, reports what is needed for the school, e.g. a teacher’s desk, and what it costs. They can buy the teacher’s desk for the school by transferring the amount directly to the school account in Uganda. Of course, they can also pay into a German account. The headmaster will purchase the item. After the money has been received, it will be shown on the homepage that the item (desk) has been purchased and Mr. Luyinda will also publish a photo of it.

In this way, they can see very concretely what has been purchased for the school with their money! The greatest possible transparency is what we strive for!

And the administrative costs? None!
All costs incurred, such as web hosting, printing of the flyers, transfer fees from the financial service providers, etc., are borne by the two chairpersons of the friends association, so that the donations can be given to the school in full.
