We always sense when we are doing a good thing. This feeling followed our team whole trip to South Africa.
Despite having a good time and mesmerizing memories, we feel responsible to be as transparent about our activities and spending as possible. Together with Lucy and Marouane from Entrepreleadership Foundation, a team of Open Arms Netherlands and Team Academy students we met kids during two events (the events and the catering was sponsored by the funds of donators).
Since Lucy introduced us to the representatives and kids from AKH, she was leading us through the actual needs of the kids. Together we helped 35 kids and teenagers. Each of them received the "back to school" package and a pair of school shoes. The package included items like pencil sets, pens, notebooks, highlighter sets, pencil cases, erasers, rulers, etc. Additionally, we purchased a laptop for the teenage kids to give them access to the world and have an easier time doing school or project-based activities.
In total, we collected 1142,3€ (1000€ from the donators through GoFundMe, 110€ from the Donation Hike at the Lion's Head in Cape Town, and 32,32€ from the 10% of the Giftees revenue). For the catering, during the events, we spent 199.6€, for the "back to school" packages we spent 329.11€, for the shoes - 254.77€, for the laptop - 310€ and 48.52 in commissions, fees, and currency conversion rates.
