A Little Charitable Trust
A Little Charitable Trust is a registered charitable trust (registered in New Zealand) that collects money for the purposes of providing assistance to projects in Bolivia that help improve the lives of children and families. . We saw a problem that has – what we believe to be – a simple solution. A little bit of money will go a long way to providing opportunities to children and their families in Bolivia. We know that just asking for money from friends and family is not enough. That is a weak, poorly developed response. Our charitable trust is developed to support the idea of our original “simple solution” (a little bit of money) but with the a clear structure of accountability, transparency and holding the NGO we are supporting to account. One year of volunteering in Bolivia left us skeptical of what volunteering could really achieve. It certainly doesn’t save the world, or even make a dent in it. And to be honest, the time and money we spent in Bolivia would have achieved more had it been sent via electronic banking…had we known where to send it. But what that one year of volunteering in Bolivia did leave us with was the knowledge, relationships and stories of what does make a difference to the lives of Bolivians. And, that a little bit of money in the right place, can make a difference. One year of volunteering in Bolivia left us with the energy to try to make a little difference and start A Little Charitable Trust.
