Maintaining Low Overheads

SAIDIA has a tradition of keeping  overheads to a minimum so that all but a small perecentage of donations and funds raised go directly to community  projects.  Nevertheless, working in the remoter parts of northern Kenya means travelling thousands of miles each year. The rutted dirt roads are heavy on vehicle wear and tear. SAIDIA staff spend much of their work week on the road, often sleeping in less than comfortable conditions. SAIDIA includes a small administration fee for managing projects. School fees include  5% to cover project supervision, bank fees and communication costs.  Development and construction project take more time to manage and require detailed financial accountability and reporting to prevent wastage and ensure quality control.  The 10% management fee also covers vehicle maintenance and depreciation.

SAIDIA’s grants management system uses a direct costing system so that all grantors can see exactly where all monies are spent.  Most development aid donors now request separate bank accounts for all projects.  SAIDIA is fully capable of managing and reporting to these independent entities.  All its financial policies are laid out in a handbook, which is available on request at
