We have an all-volunteer board and the majority of our project managers and monitors are retired professionals and ex-pats who volunteer their time and energy because they are passionate about creating change and improving people's lives.  Because of this, we have very minimal administrative expenses and are able to dedicate the significant majority of donor funds directly to beneficiary communities.  We design small projects that can be directly managed and conducted in collaboration with local communities for buy-in and long-term success.   To learn more about our methodology, visit
