Budget Transparency

Brighter Brains Institute (BBI) values transparency.

Funds contributed to our projects are wired quickly to Uganda. Photo documentation of the project activity is provided; for example, we usually deliver images of school children eating lunch food you paid for, or construction workers building the classroom you paid for, or the orphan you sponsored holding a “thank you” card with your name on it. Examples of this are shown throughout our website.
