In the North America, we have 1 physician for every 390 people. In Nakaseke District, Uganda (where SafeWorld is based), there is only 1 physician for ever 29,000 people. As we researched the most immediate, effective, community-building ways we could help, this seemed the most crucial need. When we met with all the village, parish, and district leaders, they were unanimous that this should be the first building we construct.
Out of all the options, it is the most complicated, but we're committed to the very end! Affordable access to excellent healthcare changes EVERYTHING.
What are our core values?
(this is the basis for all we do)
Why are we raising the admin budget first?
Each year, we're faced with a bit of a crossroads: what percentage do we take from projects in order to fund essential staff and operating costs, and what happens if we don't raise enough?
This year, we're beginning the adventurous task of changing course. We've decided to raise all operating costs completely separate from mission funds. The reason why is simple: once we raise our admin budget, EVERY DOLLAR / POUND / EURO will go directly toward the work on the ground.
Obviously, we need the right team to make this happen, and that's why we're going this direction.
So...we're raising an initial budget to fund operations, and then committing 100% of funds to the mission.
