We Are Transparent
We take our role as resource managers very seriously. We keep our costs as low as possible. This ensures that the donations are mainly used for our projects. We are audited annually by an independent tax consultant.
We have signed a declaration of voluntary commitment to the Initiative Transparente Zivilgesellschaft, which was launched by Transparency International Germany e.V. In this declaration we commit ourselves to transparency. You can find our details here:
