Verifiably transparent

Home What we do Verifiably transparent

As an association, we are transparent and aim to raise targeted donations and gain support in a meaningful way.

We stand for:

  • Transparency vis-à-vis donors
  • Proper fiduciary management of monetary donations
  • Compliance with ethical principles
  • Protection against unethical fundraising

We pursue no members and donations advertisement with presents, benefits or the promise or the granting of other advantages which do not stand in immediate connection with the statute purpose or are unreasonably expensive.
We refrain from the sale, rental and exchange of member or donor addresses. We neither pay nor offer to pay fees for the procurement of donations as in compliance with the guidelines and provisions of the German Donations Council (Deutscher Spendenrat e.V.).
We provide a clear explanation on the allocation of project-related donations.
We do not transfer donations received by us to other organisations.

Which is why we decided to seek certification from the Landmesser financial auditors and work with the following organisations:

Jambo Bukoba e. V. has been a full member of the Deutsche Spendenrat (German Donation Council) since 16 June 2016.
By signing the voluntary declaration, we pledge to uphold the basic values of the Deutsche Spendenrat: Transparency, security, credibility, ethical standards and accountability.
The organisations under the umbrella of the Deutsche Spendenrat e.V. want to take steps to prevent excessive administrative costs, untrustworthy fundraising and failed accountability because they significantly damage the system of donations and people’s willingness to donate.

In our audit, we assessed the level of compliance with the voluntary declaration vis-à-vis the principles of the Deutsche Spendenrat e.V. to the extent that these principles affect the financial reporting of Jambo Bukoba e.V.
Our audit did not yield any findings that , in our view, would represent a violation of the voluntary declaration to the extent that it affects the financial reporting of Jambo Bukoba e.V.”
