SPRINGS OF HOPE KENYA INC
February 16, 2013

Absolutely no transparency. Springs of Hope Kenya does not give any specific details on their website about what they do, nor does their site provide a downloadable annual report. Their accountant flat out refused to send me the latest IRS Form 990. When I pointed out that that's illegal, SOHK's president promised to comply. She never did. They act as if they have something to hide.

UPDATE: I reported SOHK to the IRS. Only after that, (two months after I asked them to e-mail their Form 990 to me) the form showed up on Guidestar. Reading thru their 990s, it's obvious that they spend too much of their resources on preaching as opposed to practical aid for the desperately needy.

I had a long and difficult experience trying to get these people to share information. You can read about it here --- http://grantner.tumblr.com/post/42835326136/springs-of-hope
