We find it of utmost importance to be transparent about what we do with donations. On a yearly base, we review our work in an annual report. In our annual reports, you will find that the majority of the contributions go straight to the benefit of the children, which we find very important. Furthermore, we strive to limit the overhead to a maximum of 5%. Low costs are possible because Kolewa has a lot of volunteers and sponsors as well as board members who perform their activities without any form of compensation.
Every year we make a policy plan where we explain our plans and projects for the upcoming year. The Indonesian Kolewa Foundation explains in their policy the projects and needed budgets. Part of the needed funds is raised in Holland by Stichting Kolewa, after the approval of the application by the Indonesian board. Other funds do come from fundraising activities in Indonesia and other parts of the world.
For 2017 our plans were and have been overall successful :
- Shelter Rumah Bicara
- School project for children with a hearing impairment
- Family gatherings
- Outreach and scouting of patients
- Pre-surgery dental care program
- Expansion network and sponsors in The Netherlands and Indonesia
