Project Expenses (29 Dec).gif

Figure 1. Project Expenses. This represents our project expenses thus far; how the $10,000 donation has been allocated up to this point. As you can see, one of the columns is "Objective"; we've broken down each expense into the specific project objective it helps us fulfill (please see Management Plan). We are in the process of allocating the remaining funds amongst the three objectives; this budget will be published shortly. A quick summary, however, of where the money will likely go: teacher training; a stipend for outside teachers to teach English; educational toys; books (in Sepedi and English); classroom materials like whiteboards; soil analysis; fertilizer; seeds; fruit trees; egg-producing chickens; and possibly a solar cooker if it is practical. Additionally, we have decided to charge 95% our cell phone airtime and 50% of our internet time to the project budget.

Figure 2. Simplified Project Budget (Draft). This is our draft project budget. It represents expected project expenditures through about 2010. Anything highlighted in yellow is waiting for a confirmation or some update. The percentages represent the cost as a proportion of the total budget ($10,000). The three columns represent (1) Present expenditures, through 31 December 2007; (2) expected expenditures in 2008; and (3) expenditures for 2009-2010. Following is a written description of the budget that might prove helpful: Project Budget Description (Simplified).doc 


Figure 3. Sepedi Children's Books. Not that anyone here can read Sepedi (aka Northern Sotho), but this is the list of children's books we are purchasing for the creche.



Figure 4. Maya Organic Wooden Toys. This is the list of Maya toys we've bought for the children. You can find pictures and descriptions of them on the Education page.




Figure 5. SA / USA Exchange Rate. This graph depicts the ratio of South African Rand to the US Dollar (Rand / Dollar); the exchange rate. As you can see, it's been more or less steadily declining since before we even arrived here. This means that, for example, our initial donation of $10,000 was worth about R70,000; now it is worth only R67,000 (give or take). I've also added two trend lines: a linear, and a six-degree polynomial.
