Administrative practice

How do we work?

Over the past few years our Ghanaian and Dutch boards have built a good relationship. Cultural differences are overcome by communicating with each other at an equal level and by respecting each other's vision. Founder and co-director of the Ghanaian board, Kelly de Vries, works and lives in Ghana. She is the key figure in the communication between both boards and visits the projects twice a month. 

The trust and responsibility to manage the projects lies with the local leaders in Ghana. They take the initiative and are supported in the background by the boards with advice and financial assistance.

The Dutch board has quarterly board meetings. Both chair Myrthe Oostenbach and co-director Kelly de Vries provide our followers and donors with the latest news through daily updates on social media and a monthly newsletter. 

We like to share our successess and experiences with you. You can find these, along with an overview of our income and expenses, in our annual report. These reports include financial statements with an audit report sponsored by accounting firm Accsal. Read our financial statements for 2012.
