The success of our work depends on donations from the generous individuals, groups and organisations which support us plus fundraising events organised by ourselves and others. The trustees seek to ensure that all monies raised are used effectively and efficiently so that every donation we receive can make a difference to a child in Malawi. All administration is undertaken by the trustees voluntarily, while trustees and others travelling to Malawi cover their own expenses. Funds donated specifically towards educational bursaries are held in a restricted fund which is used solely for that purpose.
