OUR DONOR SCREENING POLICY
Since we try to walk (or cycle) the talk as much as we can in our own lives, naturally this extends to the way that NADWOS PROJECTS exists as an organisation, including where our money comes from.
So where does our money come from? In order to make our income streams as diverse and sustainable as possible, we earn some of our own income through technical assistance for waterprojects, membership dues and from fundraising events. The rest of our income – about 65% – comes from charitable donations. Most of our grants come from government-supported bodies, but some also come from corporate foundations. In order to make sure that all our funding relationships are in line with ethos of NADWOS PROJECTS, we have created a policy. Here’s a summary:

Corporate donations

We encourage an ongoing dialogue with all our corporate funders, with the goal of helping to encourage better and more transparent environmental, social and corporate policies and practices. And when we reject a donation we’ll write to the company to tell inform them of the reasons, and we’ll send them a copy of this policy.
The principles that help to shape this policy include:
•    Opposition to activities which contribute to climate change
•    Opposition to unsustainable exploitation and consumption of natural resources
•    Opposition to activities which degrade habitats and ecosystems
•    Opposition to trade on unfair and exploitative terms
•    Support for social, environmental and economic justice
•    Support for healthy lifestyles
•    Opposition to irresponsible use of media and advertising
•    Collectivity, consensus and inclusivity

Positive screening

We encourage donations from corporations that are committed to environmental practices, make durable products that are good for consumers and the environment, invest their money ethically, employ local people, pay taxes into the local economy, treat their workers well, allow union organising and involve them in decision-making, have transparent supply chains and take part in voluntary certification schemes for their products and services.

Negative screening

Environmental: We won’t take money from corporations that break environmental laws; make products that are dangerous to public health or the environment; oppose environmental legislation or regulation; promote environmental citizenship without adjusting corporate practices accordingly; participate in violence against animals; extract or exploit natural resources unsustainably.
Social: We won’t take money from corporations that are linked to the use of forced labour; employ child labour; discriminate against their employees on gender, race, age, disability, religion, or other grounds; fight against unionisation; manufacture weaponry; or make tobacco products.
Corporate and financial practices: We won’t accept money from a financial company that doesn’t have a policy setting out its ethical investment principles – or that invests significantly in activities that aren’t in line with this policy.
This policy is open to change and will be regularly reviewed and updated. If you’ve got any feedback or ideas on how to make it even stronger, please send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

PARTNER POLICY (NADWOS PROJECTS)

Over the years we have developed solid and ongoing partnerships withorganisations around the world that tackle issues in water, sanitation and health. Our partners are already effective NGOs, charities or social enterprises working in these sectors. Through a voluntary placement, our partners are able to build capacity in specific areas to improve what they do.
No matter how large our partner or the area of development they focus on, what’s important to us is that they are doing amazing work. We have developed our own unique screening and vetting process to get to know our partners extremely well, before placing our volunteers to work alongside them.

Our Partner Criteria

We take our criteria for partners very seriously and these criteria are reflected throughout our vetting process. We look to connect withorganisations that conduct environmental development and health activities that meet the following criteria:
•    Organisation: Registered as non-governmental organisations or a recognised charity or social enterprise.
•    Operation: Have been in operation for a minimum of 2 years.
•    Staff: Have a minimum of 3 full time staff.
•    Projects: Have at least 1 project in operation.
•    Funding: Have verifiable sources of income from international/national donors.
•    Volunteer needs: Have clear needs for skilled assistance from volunteers
•    Volunteer management: Are able to manage volunteers, providing a supervisor and willing to cover all work-related costs of a placement e.g. travelling to field sites, Internet, stationary, work related phone calls.
•    Supporting information: Must be able to submit registration and legal documents, financial reports, project summaries and/or annual reports.
•    Recommendations: Must be able to provide at least 2 verifiable and professional references from external courses.
•    Location: Located in a safe area where volunteers are not at risk.


Our Vetting Process
For NADWOS PROJECTS establishing partnerships often means weeks or months of vetting and screening activities.
It is very important to us that all the charities we partner with need support from volunteers to grow and build capacity – so part of the vetting process involves talking to our partners about a volunteer’s role and responsibilities in advance so we can be sure we recommend the right person.
Overview of our stage vetting process for new partners:
•    Application – Our Placement Mangers gather background information to assess a new partner.
•    Screening and background check – We gather supporting information to verify an application including financial and project reports, legal information, funding information and professional references.
•    On site assessment – Our Placement Managers conduct an on site assessment for all of our new partners, visiting offices and project sites, talking to staff in depth about their work and volunteer needs, looking into volunteer management systems, confirming practical information (office, accommodation) and generally making sure they are happy with the work and achievements of an organisation.
•    Management approval – Once our Placement Managers are happy with a partner application, our management staff review each organisation individually to ensure that we have all the information we need to be confident of a lasting and successful partnership.
