There is always a concern when supporting charitable organisations about ‘how much money reaches those in need’ or ‘how is it spent’.
For this reason, ETM tries to do its best to limit risks by choosing the projects carefully and by funding micro-projects of well-known established organisations and individuals, and by ensuring that correct usage of funds is monitored locally.
Furthermore, the projects’ beneficiaries always send invoices and letters or photographs to show the successful conclusion of their projects.
You can be assured that close to 100% of the collected funds reach the local populations in the developing Countries as all contributions are sent to the local co-ordinators of the projects and go towards funding concrete things (equipment for schools or hospitals, water wells, etc.).
The only few administrative cost is the one of the bank account maintenance (which, thanks to BNL, is reduced to the minimum cost)
