Over the years, Mukhanyo has been blessed with a large donor base consisting of hundreds of churches and thousands of individuals in South Africa, North America and Europe. But are these donors satisfied with Mukhanyo’s performance?
Recently, Heidi Pronk and Karen VanderSloot, representatives of Word & Deed, visited Mukhanyo’s campus in KwaMhlanga to inspect the projects they are sponsoring. Word & Deed is an NGO in North America that provides some $8 million (R140 million) contributions from about 300 churches and a few thousand individuals to about 55 projects in 14 different countries. To their own surprise, support from their donors did not decrease at all during the COVID years; actually it increased, a development which they hope will continue with God’s blessing.
At present, Word & Deed is partly funding Mukhanyo’s large curriculum development project. They also contributed significantly towards the purchase of new facilities for the Durban Centre.
Twice a year Mukhanyo sends progress reports to Word & Deed (and other large supporters), enabling them to inform all their donors about each project’s progress as well as the quality of Mukhanyo’s management, administration and financial controls. Understandably, they need to know if the money of the donors is well invested for kingdom advantage. Asked if the visitors were satisfied with the effectiveness and impact of their assistance, the reply was an enthusiastic “YES”.
Each year, about half of Mukhanyo’s income comes from South Africa with the other half coming from international donors. About 75% of all income comes from thousands of small, medium, and large donors – God puts it in their hearts to contribute some of their income to Mukhanyo.
Mukhanyo is grateful to God for Word & Deed and for all the many other generous donors, both from South Africa and internationally, who make the educational ministry possible. God continues to sustain the Mukhanyo ministry each year by means of faithful Christians around the world.
