Donation designations

Donations are designated for the activities and projects undertaken by the NGO.

SAWA, in order to support and contribute to various social groups and to provide for some of their most essential needs, SAWA provides training in various areas.  We desire to highlight the capabilities of the local population in their own desire to improve their lives.  Through the implementation of projects aimed at development and reconstruction, we desire to collaborate with the reactivation and improvement of segments of the population such as children, women, young people, the elderly, and other religious and / or racial minorities (due to their vulnerability).

For SAWA, there are two types of donations; 1) donations designated for a specific project published on its website and 2) donations directly for the association.  Each promoted projects try to solve a specific problem, has a short or long-term impact, and has a specific fundraising goal and deadline.  The projects always have as their sole purpose the fulfillment of the social objectives of the association.

The donors understand and accept that by donating to a project, this donation will contribute to the achievement of the objectives established by SAWA for this project.

The donors understand and accept that by donating directly to the association, the donations will be used at the discretion of SAWA.
