Transparency & Management Resources

  • The invaluable work of our organization is exclusively based on donations and sponsorships – monetary or in-kind – provided by companies that contribute in covering the countless needs of the children that we support.
  • We receive less than 3% of state funding
  • Our financial results are reviewed by Ernst & Young. See the Report of 2014 here
  • According to the financial results of previous years only 10% of our revenues covers administrative needs. In other words, in each 1 euro donation to our organization 90 cents go directly for our main cause.
  • With due respect to every offer and with the aim to further increase our transparency and credibility we issued a social responsibility and sustainable development report for 2011. This report is only 1 out of 10 similar reports issued by NGO’s in Europe, having been verified by an independent company. Read here
