Donate Money to Charity: A Case Study
Sometimes it is difficult to decide where to donate money to charity. It is not just important to understand exactly where the money is going, but it is also important to see some of the good in action. Many of the best charities post their information about their projects on their website, which is a great way for you to get involved with the charity beforehand.
This is What Happens When You Donate Money to Charity
To fully understand what kind of impact you can make on the poverty stricken people of the world, a case study will be performed on a missionary that performs work in Kenya, Africa. The Real 4 Christ ministry dedicates time and resources to many projects in rural Kenya. Despite the tremendous growth in the last few decades, rural Kenya is still lagging far behind many of its neighbors. In fact, war torn Sudan has a higher population of citizens with access to clean water.
The Real 4 Christ ministry has drilled dozens of boreholes and water wells in rural Kenyan villages, which have helped improve the lives of thousands. Donors can receive updates about certain villages that benefitted directly from the charitable donations. This system, frequently referred to as “adopting” a village, allows contributors to engage with rural Kenyan people and create an emotional bond.
Additionally, the Real 4 Christ ministry provides feeding centers for rural Kenyan communities. Many children live off of three to four meals a week, but the feeding centers provide children with two per day. In the same facility are medical and educational services. Trained nurses offer medicine, wellness check-ups, and vitamins to help rural Kenyan communities remain disease free.
The education provided by Real 4 Christ is also greatly benefitting the rural Kenyan populations. In 2007 there were only 15 students at the newly constructed school, but there are over 300 today. In Kenya the average student to teacher ratio is 70 to 1. At Real 4 Christ, they ensure your donations maintain a ratio of 35 to 1 so that students can receive the attention they deserve. Finally, much of the donated money will be used for providing books, paper and pencils, and other necessary tools for students to be properly educated.
How to Donate Money to Charity
To donate money to charity there are a few options and a couple of steps. For Real 4 Christ, you can pay on their website via check, auto-payment (payment goes from your bank account every month), or instant donation with Pay Pal. For other ministries the options may vary, but you must research beforehand.
Once you have donated, you usually receive more information about the ongoing projects from the charity. If the charity is very dedicated, they will provide a newsletter for you to check-up on the villages and rural communities of Kenya.
