How BAO Works Funds are raised in the UK via regular sponsors and one-off fundraising events. These funds are then transferred to ’Trusted Advisors’ in Uganda who are responsible for managing our projects. These trusted advisors use the funds as agreed and provide receipts for all expenditure. Periodic project update reports are shared with our donors via our annual newsletter. None of the money raised for BAO is spent on offices, advertising, wages or travel to Uganda. We run an open book policy with our accounting so you can see exactly how the money is being spent. Details are shared with our donors every year in our newsletter. Currently our only overheads are banking transactions to Uganda (approximately £75 per year) and the cost of printing, stamps and envelopes used for sending our annual Newsletters (£60 per year). With an average income of around £10,000 we are delighted to keep overheads at 1-2% of our income!
