About Child Haven International:
Founded in 1985, Child Haven International (CHI) assists children and women in developing countries by providing them with food, education, health care, shelter, clothing, and emotional and moral support.
CHI primarily offers these services at one of its nine homes located in India (six), Bangladesh (one), Nepal (one), and Tibet (one). CHI distributed $754k in funding to CHI India in F2016, and $436k to CHI Nepal. As of June 2017, CHI reported serving a total of 732 children and 81 women for the year across all its homes. In addition, CHI sponsored a women’s program in India that trains 50 women at a time in tailoring. Child Haven International also reports running literacy programs for women and children, who may or may not also be living in one of CHI’s homes.
Child Haven International formed the SoyaCow Support Group (SSG) in 1988, and with funding from CIDA in 1992, purchased six SoyaCow machines, which efficiently produce soya milk and other
In the News: January 5,
Child Haven International is a medium-sized charity with total donations and special events fundraising of $2.7m in F2016. Administrative costs are 4% of revenues and fundraising costs are 3% of donations and special events. Per dollar donated to the charity, $0.93 goes to its programs, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending. Funding reserves of $2.5m include $1.4m in endowment funds. Excluding endowments, CHI's reserves can cover 69% of annual program costs.
Concern: All charities have 6 months to produce financial statements and file an annual return with the Charities Directorate. CHI has a December year end. As such, its financial statements should be completed by June. Its 2016 financial statements are dated August 15, 2017. Its 2017 financial statements are dated September 15, 2018. It has been late two years in a row. This raises concerns about CHI internal processes to produce financial records in a timely manner.
