How do we decide which new projects to fund?

When considering new applications for funding, the GRCT trustees take into consideration certain key factors:

  1. We work with credible and reliable partners on the ground who report regularly to us and we look to develop sustainable projects that can deliver long term benefits. At least one trustee visits South Africa each year at their own cost to meet with beneficiaries.
  2. We run a lean operation: nearly all (around 99%) of our money goes direct to beneficiaries.
  3. Our priority is the feeding of e’Pap to children.
  4. We are driven by our Christian ethos but support any child in need regardless of their faith.
  5. Our focus is the Cape area although we will consider projects elsewhere in South Africa where our criteria are met.
  6. We are a “relational” charity in that we aim to build community locally with our fundraising as well as where we distribute the funds.
