We are accountable to God for each penny we are entrusted to spend on the needy and poor and public at large. Public increasingly want a deeper and more meaningful engagement with the charities they support. The emphasis is on impact – seeing measurable results from their contributions.
We have worked very hard over past few years to improve our administrative processes to ensure that donors’ funds are spent effectively and transparently and our donors receive regular informative updates about how and where Islamic Help spends the money entrusted to us, some of our USPs are as follow.
Islamic Help Africa delivers projects that are of the greatest value to those to whom the organisation is ultimately held accountable, for example, poor and marginalized people. IHT finds an appropriate balance across economy, efficiency and effectiveness.
IHT Ensures appropriate monitoring, evaluation and learning systems for programmes and compares the expenditure and efficiency of different methods of achieving similar outputs. IHT also calculates cost per beneficiary for a service.
IHT hires skilled volunteers from all across the world who bring in valuable experiences at nominal stipends. The skills gap is filled through knowledge transfer by regular trainings.
IHT uses motor bikes instead of luxury vehicles for field purposes across our field offices. IHT also avoids luxury hotel accommodations and expat staff stay within office premises to slice down the administration cost and that is why the indirect project’s cost are always less then or around 12%.
