For over 70 years, we have worked in the most challenging regions by resourcing, enabling and encouraging our Ministry Partners to bring ongoing spiritual, physical and social transformation to their own people. We take seriously our responsibility to ensure donations are used for their intended purpose and that the projects we support have a positive impact on their beneficiaries. Regular program monitoring and evaluation form part of our commitment to due diligence. We’re transparent with our finances and are audited every year to ensure our financial processes are robust, accurate and consistent.
Over the past five years approximately 75% of funds raised have gone to partner programs that directly benefit vulnerable children and their communities. This includes the provision expertise to ensure that the funds are providing maximum benefits to their intended beneficiaries.
We provide technical assistance, specialised training and mentoring and guidance to our Ministry Partners, to strengthen their ability to serve their people and to support them to continue to improve and develop over time. We continually monitor and evaluate each project to determine its impact and effectiveness. This involves reporting on a financial and project basis, regularly visiting sites, annually conducting field office and partner audits, and conducting formal evaluations of the project.
Our work aims to empower local communities and improve their capacity to meet their own needs in the long term. Therefore our ministry partners consult local communities to ensure their needs are at the centre of the project design and that they are engaged in its implementation. Our experience shows that when local communities are engaged in these projects, transformation is multi-generational.
