Q: Can The Aninga Project Issue Tax Receipts?
A:Yes! The Aninga Project is a registered Canadian charity and we have the ability to issue tax receipts to all of our donors. In order to issue a tax receipt we require the donor’s name and street address.
Q: Where is my money going?
A: Donations are wire transferred from the project’s account to our volunteers in Uganda who deliver the funds to girls’ schools and ensure that all of their needs are met. Here is a rough breakdown of the costs for one girl in Uganda: Cost Breakdown (CAD)
School fees $160/term
Book bag $08
Books 25 cents
Pens 17 cents
Other necessities $25/term
Here is an example of one girl’s detailed expenses in Ugandan Shillings.
Q: How can I help a girl go to university in Uganda?
A: When The Aninga Project agrees to support a girl we are making a commitment to support that girl through post-secondary education. Our volunteers work with each of our girls to decide the best educational path, considering their academic inclinations and the costs of various programs.
The first two girls that The Aninga Project sent to school, Aninga and Viola, graduated from university in the spring of 2017. They are now working in their communities. We are currently supporting 3 girls pursuing post-secondary programs. Their tuition and other expenses add up to $500/term. When we support our girls through post-secondary education they are able to gain more of the confidence and skills needed to live healthy, independent lives.
