Based on our experience to date, it is crucial that we remain politically and financially independent. Only in this way can we avoid corruption and ensure that every franc really benefits the children and families in need.
Our annual budget (not including investments in infrastructure) is about CHF 60,000, and we need to finance these running costs in order to continue to provide direct aid to over 500 children and to maintain more than 20 jobs in Guinea (through which numerous family members and relatives benefit). Through consistent purchasing from local retailers as well as artisans, we support additional jobs.
For further, new projects and partnerships as well as the maintenance and expansion of the infrastructure we add about CHF 20’000 per year. In the medium to long term, such investments also make sense because they can contribute to self-financing.

Everything that Mamadou & Bineta has realized so far has been financed by the members of the association, who work for free, with the help of their families and acquaintances as well as a few Swiss foundations and companies. Until we can generate income on site, we are dependent on every contribution.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has supported us in any way over the past years.
Again and again young people in schools as well as adults at festive occasions, e.g. birthdays, report about Mamadou & Bineta and collect donations. We are happy about such nice initiatives and are very grateful for them.
Mamadou & Bineta is recognized as a non-profit association in Switzerland.
