Where does the money go?
Meet Africa keeps the costs in the Netherlands as low as possible. We don’t have an expensive office, big staff or advertising campaigns. A substantial part of your money is being spend in Ghana, Cameroon or Malawi, because we aim at a fair price for services rendered (Fair Trade Principle).
With the part we send to the partner in Africa, the partnerorganisation organises everything necessary for your stay. Apart from this, the host family receives money for board and lodging of course and poorer families are supported to enable them to receive staying guests. We aim at hosting as many people as possible with families in the villages, because they need the extra income (besides selling agricultural products) the most. In this way, by staying with them, you also support the local population who often experience difficulties obtaining a reasonable income.
