Catholic Nuns in sub-Saharan African countries who are struggling to sustain their respective Religious Congregations financially have been urged to strive for transparency especially when dealing with partners in projects.
In his keynote address during a five-day workshop that was organized by All-Africa Conference: Sister to Sister (AAC: SS) to equip Catholic Nuns with skills for mission sustainability, Kerry Robinson from Raskob Foundation asked the participants to be always trustworthy when dealing with finances in their respective missions.
“It matters that we honor donor intent and are transparent and accountable with finances. It’s why ethics matter. Be trustworthy. Be joyfully confident,” said Robinson.
The official of the Raskob Foundation, an entity that partners with AAC: SS in projects, added, “It is not motivating to give when the person asking perceives fundraising as an obligation that she dreads.”
In the workshop that ended April 30, the Catholic Nuns who were drawn from Nigeria, Cameroon, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Malawi were challenged to serve wholeheartedly so as to attract support amid dwindling donor funding.
