The association acquires donations and guarantees the targeted use of the finances in Nairobi. It is made up of committed individuals who see supporting the schools in Nairobi as a meaningful development project. Donors are automatically members of the association. It is politically and denominationally neutral. The board meets several times a year to discuss strategy and financial needs. Every spring, the Board of Directors organizes a General Assembly at which, in addition to the statutory business, the members decide on the scope and direction of the Nairobi project.
