Is my donation being put to good use? This is a universal question of all donors, and especially of those donating to organizations working in less developed countries, wherein accountability standards often differ from what we expect in the United States. At OFDC, we strive to ensure that each and every gift is truly making a difference. We require thorough proposals, status updates, and final reports. Funds are not released until requirements are met. In addition, we travel to Kenya annually to verify the progress and completion of OFDC projects, as well as to identify ways to improve.
