Without our supporters, we simply wouldn't be able to make change happen. Your trust is valuable to us and we are committed to being fully transparent and clear about the way we operate.
Safe Child Africa relies entirely on the generosity of our supporters to deliver change for the children that we seek to help, so we have developed our Safe CHild Africa Supporter Guarantee, which clearly outline our commitment to you when you choose to support the work of Safe Child Africa.
Safe Child Africa Supporter Promise
1. Transparency about how we put your support to use
We spend donations where they have the most impact for children in crisis
We value every gift we receive, large and small. We will always endeavour to put your gift to work as quickly as we can. We will let you know if this changes.
2. Feedback that enables you to see how you're helping transform children's lives
Your support helps children in our projects. We will share stories of our work with you and be honest about the challenges, as well as the successes, that we face.
When a crisis affects the areas where we work, we’ll do our best to contact you as quickly as possible to let you know how children are affected.
