Like any organization, LEI has necessary overhead costs--such as rent, utilities, travel, supplies, etc. However, none of what you donate will be used for these expenses, and every penny of your donation goes toward providing education opportunities for the children,including:
Educational tools and supplies
School facilities and maintenance
Medical care for children
School fees and uniforms
Outings and educational trips
...and many other necessities. (our blog keeps you up to date on our projects!)
How do we ensure that everything you donate goes to these, and not the overhead? Simple. A single donor covers those costs! Their generosity and willingness to support our organization now allows us to say to our donors that, without exception, 100% of every donation goes directly to our current projects. We cannot thank Epic Displays enough for making this possible, as it has been our goal since the first day we started the Longonot Education Initiative.
A word directly from the owner:
"When I discovered the work going on with the Longonot Education Initiative in early 2012 through the touching story of Omari I was moved, like many. I felt compelled to learn more about the mission and see exactly how they would use received donations.
After communicating--extensively!--with the small team and closely following their inspiring projects since, I hold no doubt of the incredible and much needed work being done. The team, which draws no compensation, have truly dedicated their lives to providing opportunities that would otherwise not be available to these children. It's such an honor to be involved with the endeavor they've created.Please, don't hesitate to contact them (or me!) if you want to learn more about the projects or how to support the initiative. Every little bit truly, truly helps."
