100% of your donations reach the project
We are happy for every donation to our project. Trust and credibility are the cornerstones of our work. We are aware of this responsibility and we are very careful with your donations. We assure you that your donation will benefit the project as a whole. To this end, at the beginning of our activities, in cooperation with the Kenyans, we introduced an accounting and controlling system that complies with German standards. Every year we prepare a financial plan on the ground, and our financial accountant is in close communication with the accountant in Kenya. Once a month, we receive a report from the school accountant about the expenses and income from all accounts.
Why do we not have a DZI – certificate?
(German charity audit organization)
The team behind Shangilia Deutschland are all volunteers. The charity is officially recognized. Donors always receive a receipt.
The certification and its regular audits cost a lot of money. In addition the auditors allow organizations, that receive accreditation, to spend up to 30% of their income on overhead and advertising costs. We are a long way away from this. In the last 12 months we gave out 0.2% of our income on overhead costs. This was mainly for postage and the cost of maintaining a web site. We can save the costs of certification and in the end the German tax authorities are our auditors.
You can read where the donations go in our yearly financial report. Please ask for any clarification you need.
