Important information from the Hogar

Over the past few weeks, we talked about our Values and Mission. We also have four core values that are part of our constitution registered with the Ecuadorian government. One of them is accountability. It states, 'We are accountable to those we serve and to those who contribute to ensure all resources are used to the maximum benefit'. What does that mean?

You will notice that when you donate to us, we issue a receipt. All donations are logged and reviewed by an independent accountant and reported to the tax department and regulatory agencies. But it is much more than that. Everyone we assist signs a document verifying assistance in three main categories. Food/living expenses, medicine or transportation. We have a stringent vetting and follow-up process to ensure that those we help actually spend money on what it is given for. We do home visits, ask for receipts and verify needs.

We will never give someone money for luxuries. We also expect those we help to contribute in some way, if they are able. People may be in difficult situations; they must still take some sort of responsiblity to improve their situation and not become dependent on assistance. With limited resources, it is important that the support you give is spent on people actually needing assistance and those making an effort to improve their situation.

When you support Hogar de Esperanza, you can be assured that your support is used to the maximum benefit.
