Benin Donations

Donating through our orgnization is easy, tax-deductible, and guarantees that your money is used where it's needed most.

100% of Donations Reach the People of Benin
We have often been skeptical about donations with other organizations because of the large beauracracies involved. For every $1 provided, often times $0.50 or less would make it's way to the people in need.

The money you donate makes its way directly to the orphanage. It goes either physically in our hands in the trips we make, or is wired directly to Gabi (the orphanage director) who takes it personally to the orphanage.
What's needed
We will update this page with what's needed but most of the time the best gift is money. This gives us the resources to not just supply goods for the Benin people, but to build and develop businesses to help improve their economy. Instead of a one-time gift like a pair of shoes, your money can be used to help build a structure that allows the people to start their own business. You will truely be providing a gift that will keep on giving.
