b. to provide information to the Dutch population about the needs in Africa
c. to perform all the additional acts which, in the broadest sense, are connected to or are advantageous to the aforementioned.
Protection of vulnerable children
We meet all volunteers, trainees and others who regularly come into contact with children in Uganda to discuss all aspects of child behavior and child safety and they have to have a certificate of conduct before they are allowed to work with children. All Ugandan staff, volunteers and trainees must sign the 'Child Protection Policy'. This document describes the rights of the children and the protection of their integrity both inside and outside of educational situations, as well as the sanctions policy for violations by different staff groups.
Methods of fundraising
Our methods of fundraising include sponsorship of orphans, general donations, distribution of newsletters, social media information, and specific campaigns at schools or in businesses. We also submit projects to various trust funds. (crowd funding/project based activities.)
Every donation is welcome! Kinderhulp Afrika runs solely on donations and we are grateful for all the support we receive.
