I’ve spent the past few weeks doing research on different charity organizations. We’ve wanted to raise money for a development organization that operates in the areas we travel through. We also wanted it to be small enough to feel sincere, genuine and on target, but big enough to be established, well-known and trustworthy. We also wanted it to be a politically and religiously independent organization and it would be good if it had a local office here in Sweden (if it was international).
There aren’t that many organizations around here that live up to all these standards but I found one that felt just right! So today I’ve contacted this organization that I’m hoping will be interested in cooperating with us for this project. It’s a well established organization who work in a very good way, I believe, by focusing on giving people the tools to get themselves out of poverty instead becoming aid dependent. I will tell you all about it when I know more, now let’s just hope this organization will be interested in being involved in our project. Fingers crossed!
