After being active in charitable projects without an organizational framework for almost three years (2010 - 2012) we decided to found Jayma Kunan to help people facing extreme poverty in a more structured manner. For this step we were inspired by several trips to Perú and Moldova. We deliberately keep a tight focus regarding the range of projects we are involved but on the other hand we are trying to get more broadly involved within each project.
We would like to stress two things. On the one hand, that it is our goal that not a single donated cent is used for administration or overhead costs. All of these costs are borne by our members. This implies that every single Euro donated arrives without any deduction exactly where it is needed. And on the other hand, that we work totally independent of any organization or church. Our conviction is borne of the fact that we are truly fortunate regarding our personal living situation and circumstances and that we perceive it as our obligation, moreover our duty, to help those in need.
We just triggered a payout from betterplace.org in order to make a transfer to our project in Huaycan (Peru) to invest it in the following:
* Procurement of food for the children of their center, their parents and people in the neighborhood
* salary of our chef who is preparing the food
* construction of the school infrastructure
