What do you see when you look at Africa? Meet Kate sees hope, happiness and a whole lot of potential. By providing children with their basic needs and rights, we are rewarded with golden smiles every day! We also see adults stand up and work hard to see their communities flourish. This is the side of Africa we want to share with you and believe the rest of the world should see!
Good intentions or nice gestures are not enough in development work. By focussing on equal relationships instead of dependant ones, we can truly make a difference whilst working towards a positive future. Improving the current situation is only beneficial if the changes persist, especially when foreign support ceases. That is why we start all our projects with the aim of making them self-reliant.
Smale-scale projects and transparency
Meet Kate is a small organisation with a big vision. We communicate personally and directly with our followers and donors to allow them to become involved in our projects and be a part of the Meet Kate family. Through our website, social media and monthly newsletter, we seek to give you a realistic insight into who we are and what we do. In Ghana, our small-scale focus is evident in the size of our projects. This approach means that we are able to give each child individual attention. Every child and their situation is unique and therefore demands a unique approach. Transparent and realistic reporting allows us to show you both our successes and our setbacks. We try to bring our projects in Ghana closer to you by giving daily updates on Facebook and Twitter and by sending out a comprehensive annual report and monthly newsletter. We believe it’s important that you know exactly what we do with your donations!
Local focus and cooperation
All of Meet Kate’s projects are established in cooperation with local organisations and work closely with other foreign organisations. By respecting both cultures, we have always managed to overcome existing cultural differences. Neither culture is regarded as better than the other. Since a project cannot become sustainable until local traditions and customs are taken into account, effective communication is very important. And achieving this means that, in turn, we can achieve even more!
