About Sleeping Children Around the World:
Founded in 1970, Sleeping Children Around the World (SCAW) provides bed kits to children in developing countries, regardless of race or religion. Each kit consists of a mattress, pillow, blanket, mosquito net, clothes and school supplies. The contents of the kit vary from country to country. SCAW states that it does not undertake any marketing efforts nor receive any government funding.
In F2016, SCAW spent $2.2m on purchasing and distributing 61,000 bed-kits in India, Kenya, Nicaragua, Philippines, Uganda, Togo, Sri Lanka, Tanzania, Honduras and Bangladesh. This means that the overall cost per bed-kit distributed are $36 each. To date, Sleeping Children Around the World has distributed bed-kits to over 1.4 million children across the globe.
SCAW is almost entirely volunteer run with only one full-time employee, and has partnered with volunteers from 12 organizations in over 10 countries to distribute the bed-kits.
Sleeping Children Around the World is a medium-sized charity with total donations of $2.8m in F2018. Administrative costs are 5% of revenues and fundraising costs are 2% of donations. Per $1 donated to the charity, 94 cents goes to the cause, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $5.2m can cover annual bed kit costs for 2 years.
This charity report is an update that is currently being reviewed by SCAW. Changes and comments may be forthcoming.
