10 reasons for your donation
10 reasons why your endowment or donation is important for our work and could be just right for you
- Deficient medical care in Myanmar
Myanmar is one of the countries with the lowest health expenditure in the world.
- Illness as a poverty trap
Illness represents a high risk of poverty in Myanmar: the sick are not only affected by the hardship of their illness, but also by the associated follow-up costs (transport / medicine / loss of working hours…).
- Support with high efficiency
Your donation / endowment is systemically effective on four levels:
Promotion at individual, family, local and national levels.
- Promoting social balance
Your donation also enables disadvantaged families to ensure that their children receive a first-class education.
- Qualification against unemployment
Paradoxically, due to the low government health budget in Myanmar, many doctors are unemployed. With their qualification, physicians improve their professional opportunities.
- help for self-help
Your donation / sub-foundation means empowerment: After the sponsorship, the sponsored persons are quickly independent of “western donors” and in this way they can contribute to their society with self-confidence.
- Donation= 99% project funding
99% of your donation goes to our scholarship holders. We as well as our cooperation partners work on a voluntary basis. We only pay a small flat fee for the fiduciary administration of the foundation. There will be no deductions for service providers or on-site supervisors. In this way, annual foundation expenditures remain below 1% of the foundation’s assets.
Transparency is important to us, which is why we are happy to send you our annual cost statements and financial reports on request.
- Your personal way of supporting
You have many choices to support us financially: with small or large amounts, one-time or recurring, into the Consumable Endowment or the Eternal Endowment. For more information, see Donations.
- Doing good and talking about it
All benefactors and donors will be named on our website upon request.
Finances, however, only form the framework of our work. The heart of the foundation is people!
That’s why we’d love for you to tell others about us and make potential future supporters aware of our work.
