Donate

As a non-government organisation in a developing country, we rely on donations. We are an independent indigenous organisation, set up with an account full of hope and the talent and community support base to make a little bit go a long way. We appreciate any support, whether it be through volunteering, advocacy, large fundraising campaigns or small donations.

To give you an idea:

  • $50 is the minimum loan we give to women in our microfinance program. This can set her up with a small business, and eventually ensure she has enough money to look after her family and send her children to school.
  • $180 pays for school fees for one child, for one year. $360 provides a child with full sponsorship, ensuring they also have school uniforms, regular meals and basic health care so they have the best chance at school and in life.
  • $800 pays for a teacher’s salary for one year.
  • $3000 will put a roof on our new health clinic.
  • Please feel free to contact us at info@yofafo.org or media@yofafo.org to inquire about any specific programs such as child sponsorship or the microfinance project. Otherwise, if you wish to donate to YOFAFO, please do so via the following options and we will direct your money to the area of greatest priority. Your support is greatly appreciated and we cannot express our gratitude enough.

     

    Donate with GlobalGiving:

    to support specific projects

    GlobalGiving is an online  charity fundraising web site that gives social entrepreneurs and non-profits from anywhere in the world a chance to raise the money that they need to improve their communities. Since 2002, GlobalGiving has raised $68,170,218 from 271,933 donors who have supported 5,848 projects.

    All donations go through the GlobalGiving Foundation, a registered 501(c)3 organization, which receives a nominal 15% fulfillment fee. This helps cover the cost of operating GlobalGiving – finding and vetting projects, providing training and support to project leaders, attracting donors, and maintaining an innovative, informative web presence. It also includes the fees assessed by vendors for credit card processing, mobile giving, wire transfers, and other fees charged by financial institutions.

    Most donors choose to make an incremental contribution at checkout to cover this fee and ensure that 100% of their donation goes to the project(s) that they have selected to support. This results in an average of 90% of all funds donated getting to the grassroots project(s) selected.
