Accountability Measures

 

Financial accountability is essential to honor the donors and to build trust. Our partners and individual friends work very hard to raise the funds sent to LAVICCARE. They are eager to help the needy children and expect to hear about where and how the funds have been spent. Accountability is imbedded into each of the LAVICCARE projects and Initiatives. The steps are transparent and the trail is easy to follow.

 

  • A strong and diverse Board of Directors supervises the on-going measures and practices of the organization.

  • Cheques/checks are made out to Lake Victoria Islands Child Care

  • Funds are allocated to specific areas (in consultation with the donor)

  • Small project funds are kept separate from administration funds.

  • Dual signatures are required on every withdrawal of funds or transfers.

  • Photos are taken and receipts are collected

 

Your gift means a great deal to our organization, but even more to the children and the community who rely on LAVICCARE for help. Ugandan children living on the islands of Lake Victoria will be blessed with your ongoing support through health programs, education, food, and meeting basic needs.

As a non-government organization, LAVICCARE relies on the generosity of others. Through our partnership with you we can continue to provide assistance to the needy children. Together lets join the boat to bring light to children living in the shadows.
