Giving back project

Small contribute

KAYA believes that a commercial organization able to contribute.
It may sound a bit like a Miss World contest, but it would be nice if we leave a little bit better than the world that we have found her. Therefore KAYA donates € 1 per piece of jewelry to Eduki foundation so that a child can go to school in Gambia.
Perhaps a small drop in the ocean.
But it feels really good to not only have a profit but also really concretely contributing to children on the other side of the world.

Exceptional children
KAYA When this project started with Eduki, the cost of a local school were about 50 euros per year.
This financeert KAYA school lunches, books, shoes and school uniforms and we were the first jewelery line = 1 week school handle.
But some children are performing exceptionally well!

Therefore KAYA has decided to a better school to do so. Several children with Eduki
Therefore, the number of sponsored children a little lower, but because of some kids get really develop. Themselves a great opportunity (and often the whole village)

Total contribution
Sales grow tremendously KAYA, therefore we can almost double the donation for the school year 2014-2015!
KAYA this year will donate € 2,169, this can 10 children to school (which Sally and Antoina go to a private school).
We then keep some budget left, above the foundation will have some new kids that can look through the donations to school.
For the school year 2013-2014 KAYA € 1,360 donated. For this amount seven children could go to school.

How does it work?
My system keeps track of how many jewelry were sold. It does not matter what price the jewelry has. KAYA choose this method because it is the most transparent, so the donations can be easily audited.


Why Eduki Foundation?
The opportunities for children starting in my opinion the chance of education. Unfortunately, many children in the Gambia have never seen a school within.
Through a friend, I came across Eduki Foundation, a small (ANBI recognized) organization with a passionate group of volunteers who are active.
They even fly at their own expense to the children and the schools to ensure that the donations are delivered effectively. I regularly get photos, school reports and videos so we can follow all the children. Really See also and click here for the latest newsletter of this particular foundation.
