We collect and review documentation for every organization, including its legal documents, financial records, program materials, and lists of senior staff and board members, in order to validate that the organization is running the project as described. We also evaluate the organization’s capacity to implement activities, and communicate about its work, and we research the organization’s relationship with previous funders. Finally, we ensure that the organization is compliant with anti-terror guidelines and international guidelines for philanthropy. Once they’ve been vetted and added to the Avaaruha, each organization is required to submit quarterly project reports, including activities, accomplishments and results of the project to-date. These reports are emailed to travelers who contributed by booking their trip on www.avaaruha.com so avaaruha can see how their donation is being used and what progress has been made.
