Governance

...structures and processes that are designed to ensure accountability, transparency, sustainability...

Accountability

ACCOUNTABILITY.jpg

 

Accountability, in terms of ethics and governance, is equated with answerability, blameworthiness, liability, and the expectation of account-giving. (Wikipedia)

Twice a year, we are inspected Federally via a detailed online platform plus by two different State entities which includes providing detailed information both financial as well as all aspects of our Programs and children's health, development, etc.  as well as a knock at the door - with no appointment - where a team of government officials walk in and stay for anywhere from four to six hours - whatever it takes - depending on how many children we have at any given time - to audit not only financials but also legal, health, operations, premises, conditions... all of this includes interviewing children, youth, staff, volunteers, neighbors.  Our home becomes theirs until their inspection is complete.  We are sharing below for the first time on our website some stats that may be of interest.

Transparency

Our Transparency can be seen in our openness to receive donors in our home and allow them to witness firsthand the results of their generosity, see the children in their home and school environment, play a game of chess or share a meal, review financial information...

 

In Mexico, Transparency, if not handled properly, can affect security and the integrity of all those involved, including donors.  We feel this is a priority and must supercede a need to bear-all on the www.  We have avoided many situations that other charities have been faced with by being mindful of this sad reality.  This is not Canada, nor is it the US - this is Mexico.  So, if there is anything we have missed on the website - information you were hoping to find - please just contact us and we will gladly respond!
