How we finance ourselves
1.-Children Sponsorship program allows donors to support a child and his family with 300€ annually (i.e. less than 1€ per day!). Info and photos of the child/family are then sent to the donors three times a year.
2. Donations from friends and supporters.
3.Fundraising events such as concerts, performances, festivals and bazaars.
4. Submission of projects to institutions or/and private donors for financing.
Regular monitoring of projects are carried out by GMA volunteers and local representatives of the Catholic Missions. Both cooperate for the benefit of children and families supported. Our sponsors are invited to join GMA volunteers during periodical trips to Africa,to experience first hand the impact of our charitable activities with the aim of further disseminating of Gma Missions.
