I would like to have an accounting for the money I send each month. How much of it actually reaches my child and his family? How much is being taken for admin fees, etc.?
Thanks for your response.

Hi Sharon! Thanks for asking this question! It is important to know where your money is going. We've made a commitment that no less than 80% (usually it's more than that) of the donations you send will go towards programs that help your child. This means the tutoring, scholastic materials, Bible teaching, health and hygiene education, medical care, HIV/AIDS awareness classes, recreational activities, literacy training, educational tours and leadership skills. The remaining 20% goes towards administration and marketing costs associated with keeping this program going and spreading the word about our ministry. Whenever you send extra monetary gifts to your child 100% of whatever you send is given to your child.
