Local salaries and expenses are budgeted at $500US per month, a figure that will grow as our total budget and programs grow. The remainder of the budget will go entirely for the plans and programs described herein.
For larger projects, Orange Helpers will seek grants and partnerships with foundations and international NGOs who may share common goals and interests. Mr Schuessler has extensive experience in writing proposals and grant requests and there is a broad network of organizations working in Vietnam with common interests…poverty, housing, community development, handicapped children, rural health care, micro loans, etc.
