    Could this include you?

    We raise money for our programmes in Zambia from a wide range of supporters. These include members of the public, schools and churches, Rotary Clubs, charitable trusts and foundations, and occasionally major donors such as Comic Relief and the UK Lottery. We also work with our partner organisations to help them raise funds from within Zambia.

  • Kaloko organisational information

    Finance, governance and reporting

    Kaloko’s Trustees meet quarterly with the UK Administrator and Director to ensure good governance and sound strategic direction for the organisation. The work in Zambia is interrogated and impact assessed, the finances reviewed and performance of the staff appraised. Salaries are set annually by the Board of Trustees taking into account inflation, individual performance, funding availability and industry comparisons.

    The Trustees serve indefinitely, are expected to organise an early visit to Kaloko Zambia and from time-to-time travel out on further monitoring trips. New Trustees are provided with an induction both on the purpose and activities of the Kaloko Trust UK and on the roles and responsibilities of a Trustee.

    Kaloko UK’s day-to-day business is managed by the Director, who reports directly to the Trustees, with particular support and supervision being given by the Chair of Trustees.

    In 2015 overall income was significantly higher than the previous year at £336,181. In 2016 this dipped to about 10% lower at £301,459 and overall expenditure reduced correspondingly as funds were passed on to Zambia.

    In keeping with Kaloko’s ethos, direct charitable expenditure continues to remain very high at 96% of total expenditure. By year-end, expenditure exceeded income by £13,886 principally because less UK-held restricted funds were carried forward to the following year when compared to the previous period.
