Our annual report is now available on our website (in Dutch). The report gives a broad outline of how the project in Juigalpa progressed in 2016, the current state of financial affairs and how funds we raised were used. The financial report, vetted by an audit committee, serves the purpose of informing all readers and being accountable to all funding organizations that have supported Vivir Juntos.
Regarding our fund-raising targets, at the preparatory phase of the project in 2015 the Boards of Vivir Juntos and Ruach in Juigalpa Nicaragua agreed that Vivir Juntos would do its utmost to raise $150,000 for the period 2016-2020. Of this $150,000 a total of $45,000 has already been transferred. Considering our (minimal) costs and our current bank balance, we would still need to raise between $35,000 and $40,000. So thanks to you we have achieved a lot in a short time!
However, the Board of the Ruach Foundation has asked us whether our contribution could be increased somewhat, and we are in negotiation about this. Obviously this would increase our fund-raising target. We trust we can count on your on-going support in the next years. Together we can make a difference.
