Saidia Children's Home
The Children's Home has almost doubled in size since 2008 and is now home to 56 orphaned children and babies. At the same time the education cost has risen substantially as the children have grown.
We need to close the gap between running costs and our current sponsorship income.
December 2012 - December 2013
Charity information: Mji wa Neema Orphanage
To close the gap between the running cost of the Home and the current sponsorship income. The gap is around £10,000 per annum
It will ensure the continued financial sustainability of the Home which is now at maximum capacity
To raise on a on-going basis £10,000 per annum
Activities» Recruit more sponsors. Each sponsor agrees to support a child at the rate of £20 per month or more.
» To increase one -off donations
What success will look like
Success will be... increasing donations income by £4,000 and adding 25 new sponsors, each supporting a child by £20 per month or more.
Financial security for the Children's Home measured by our ability to provide suffient funds for the carefully managed needs of the Home.
Missing the target will absorb the reserve for future education needs which will grow significantly. Continued shortfalls in meeting the running costs will limit the future capacity of the Home in the face of enormous need.
