Reasons why you can trust Vision for Asia to manage your donations effectively:
We strive to utilise and manage the money donated to effectively support the requests and needs of our 10 Asian partners.
2020 was a vastly different year in terms of financial activity due to the Coronavirus pandemic affecting us here in the UK and our Asian partner in their own countries. Whilst we were limited here in terms of running fund raising events and giving promotional talks to gain support our Asian partners were also limited and restricted in what they could do.
Nevertheless we did not see a big drop in the income we had in fact once Project Exodus was removed, as it is now running under another charitable organisation, we increased our income very slightly on our 2018 accounts.
We are a volunteer run organisation so need to utilise part of the donations given to cover the annual running costs incurred in administer the work of the charity here in the UK. So 20p in every £1 donated is used for this purpose.
We are again hoping to increase our income by 20%, which was our target in 2020, in order to continue to support the fast growth that our Asian partners are experiencing in their work. We hope to achieve this by firstly getting the charity more widely known and as a consequence to see an increase in the number of volunteers helping to run, promote and fundraise.
