Programs:

Program service accomplishments include international programs, public education, overseas program services, program familiarization- see attached statements of program accomplishments. Our ratio for program/administrative expenses is approximately 81%. There are a number of realities that lead world neighbors to this program/administrative ratio; 1)we rely on numerous small, individual donors and foundations for our financial support and require more time by staff to support these relationships. This reality has allowed us to develop our unique and highly successful program methodology that is not driven by any one person's or organization's agenda. 2) our program is delivered by thousands of community volunteers who carry out projects for themselves. These efforts are not reflected in dollars, thus keeping our program costs low. We also do not construct buildings or provide other equipment or facilities-costs that typically boost program costs to higher levels.
