Financial Policy

Financial Policy

The interest of Centre for African Justice Peace and Human Rights (CAJPHR) is to enrich the lives of people in Africa and around the world in a variety of ways by creating a wide array of benefits to society through the promotion of peace, justice and human rights. 

As a nonprofit organization, the CAJPHR has no means of making financial gain. Thus to keep operating and to pursue very broad objectives, the Foundation relies exclusively on donations and the good will from its stakeholders. That means, the CAJPHR receive financial contributions through donations from individuals, and organizational / governmental grants, among other charitable sources.

The Centre for African Justice Peace and Human Rights has among its values: transparency, accountability, and effectiveness. All financial transactions are made to foster excellent delivery in projects and to provide actors across Africa with the resources, knowledge and skills that create sustainable solutions against criminal impunity.

The CAJPHR’s Board members are lawyers with over 10 years of legal experience and that work actively to enhance the visibility of peace, justice and human rights. The CAJPHR’s team is also composed by professionals in the areas of business administration, communication, and finance. Together, the team ensures at all times that the CAJPHR’s financial and non-financial resources are used in furtherance of the objectives of the Foundation.

To achieve excellence, Centre for African Justice Peace and Human Rights has set up a sound financial and operational system with the aim of ensuring that accurate financial records are kept. The Foundation conducts periodic financial reviews to address accuracy and transparency of financial reporting. This is internally considered an expedient safeguard to protect the integrity of the Board Members, Advisory Council Members, Committee Members and Volunteers who are Professionals of high repute that have invested diverse resources in building and enhancing the work of the Foundation.

The CAJPHR financial policy is consistent with its mission, it is compatible with the organizational capacity, and respects the interests of donors and prospective donors. We operate in accordance with the legislation of The Kingdom of The Netherlands and as a result, the Foundation publishes its annual financial report on the website, and it pledges to keep to the existing rules in every respect regarding financial accountability.

Remuneration Policy 

The Board of Directors of the Centre for African Justice Peace and Human Rights (CAJPHR) and the workers/members of CAJPHR do not receive any salary for their work. All workers at our NGO operate on a pro-bono basis, as volunteers. Our remuneration policy is designed to encourage the culture of charity and voluntary work as a means of contributing to intellectual, human and international development. It also helps to reduce the cost of project management as high project management costs may have a negative impact on partners and beneficiaries. This policy helps our NGO to avoid conflicts of interest and focus on the interest of the beneficiaries of our work.

Declaring Expenses and Reimbursements

Although very rare, CAJPHR members and volunteers are allowed to declare prior agreed expenses that involve eligible project activity or project organisation costs that have been advanced. To be applicable, such project expenses must have been anticipated, discussed and approved by the Team Management before and after making it. Such expenses include but are not limited to costs for international telephone calls, costs for printing materials, and other third-party payment reimbursements. Luckily, following due consideration, some members prefer not to request reimbursement as their personal contributions to our causes. 

Income Policy

Centre for African Justice is a non-profit organisation that relies on the goodwill of its stakeholders to keep its activities going. CAJPHR exclusively counts on voluntary donations from its Board Members, partners and stakeholders – including corporate entities and private individuals to finance its projects, events and administrative operations. For the present Right to Quality Education Project which involves the construction of sanitation facilities in a Uganda-based primary school, CAJPHR is specifically fundraising under the GlobalGiving and GoFundMe platforms and all income received will be duly expended for this purpose. CAJPHR does not charge membership dues.
