In a nutshell

HARAMBEE strongly vaues accountability to those who entrust us with their donations. Our costs are low—our staff of one is unpaid, and we pay no rent or other overhead. We plan carefully so that whatever we do in a faraway country will benefit a maximum number of people and will be implemented sensitively and responsibly. We work with established schools and clinics so that there is good management and sustainability. All of our projects are partnerships, not charity; we believe it is fair and empowering to expect something back so that those we help can participate in the development of their community.
