The Trustee and Committee members of the charity are a group of people with different professional backgrounds – from finance and law to education and sales. We have joined forces to use our skills, knowledge and time to make a difference to disadvantaged children in Kibera and give them the chance for a better life.
We are all volunteers and our support is free of charge. No Salaries are paid to us. No Expense expense reimbursement are received.The principles on which we base the VF activities are:
We volunteer and give our time and efforts for free. We also organize fundraising activities and any donations received are used to support, finance and contribute to our projects in Kenya.
Small project to make a difference
We search, select and focus on small projects with the aim of solving every day urgent needs, rather than distributing few to many. We want to make a difference in single unique situation.
We want to invest our time and the donations we receive into projects that have the potential to become auto-sustainable in the long run without external support. To do that, we carefully select and identify projects where we are confident we can achieve our goal.
We look at situations with a 360-degree view and we try to provide all encompassing support: offering our time, knowledge and expertise as well as medical and educational advise. We try and involve experts who want to be part of the project.
The Volunteers Foundation Committee members are Monica Dan, Karin Weiss-Cundey, Andrea Natali, Claudia Rodrigues and Pauline Vicente ( based in London), Sheila Lobo and David D’Souza ( based in Kenya) and Annalisa Di Giacomo ( based in Rome ).
