Buyamba Uganda is a non-profit 501(c)3. Our tax ID # is 56-2628066.
Buyamba operates on an overhead cost of 11% of all donations according to our 2019 end of the year accounting. Of this, most of the cost is associated with operating the child sponsorship program. This low cost is achievable through the gracious gift of time provided by many volunteers. Our financials are open to the public. Please email the Executive Director for any additional questions at Julie@ugandabuyamba.com.
Buyamba is directed by a U.S. Board of Directors composed of lay-people, Christian businessmen, and Educators. Many of the board members have been to Uganda and actively support the ministry with time, funding, and experience. The Board meets quarterly.
The mission of the Board is to:
Although there are two full time and one part time paid staff members, Buyamba Uganda functions primarily through a group of volunteers.
As an accountability partner with Buyamba Uganda Orphanage Outreach, the activities include the ongoing process of ministry review in Uganda. No less than once a year, a board member returns to Uganda to visually inspect the activities of the ministry and review the performance against the initial budgets and goals. As with any new ministry, it is an evolving program. Defining donor expectations and setting the proper processes in place ensure overall expectations are met.
