Where the Funding Goes

98% of our funding goes to our program costs. Our primary program costs include small stipends for our volunteer staff members responsible for all aspects of running our English and Mentoring Programs, including volunteer recruitment, screening, training, coordination with local Afghan partner organizations, scheduling all student-teacher matches, monitoring and supporting all student-teacher matches, assisting with curriculum and cultural questions, collecting and reviewing teacher and student reports and surveys, report writing, maintaining a secure, interactive website and database for program management, and providing daily assistance to all volunteers, partners and participants as needed. We also have recurring website, database and e-mail costs.
