XSProject : Generate Income & Hope From Non-Recyclable Garbage
The work is built around social programs and a business that upcycles trash into beautiful products that people will buy.
How are sponsored children matched with donors?
We provide scholarships to the children of trash pickers in the Cirendeu community. Those with the greatest needs are sponsored first (generally the older children). We also work to ensure continuity of sponsorship for children from year to year.
Please let us know if you have an age or gender preference for the child you are sponsoring and we’ll do our best to match it.
Will I receive updates if I sponsor a child?
Yes! When you sponsor a child for a year or longer you will get:
1.a photo of your child, a biography and a story about their family
2.annual progress reports
3.the satisfaction of knowing you are supporting a child into a better life.
Will I get a receipt for my donation?
Yes! A receipt will be issued for all donations.
Should I donate direct or online through the Global Giving website?
At present we do not have an online facility to receive donations directly. If you would like to donate and would prefer to do that online, please do so through the Global Giving website at www.globalgiving.com. This is also appropriate for smaller donations where you are not based in Indonesia and bank fees would otherwise be very expensive.
For larger donations ($US500+) we would encourage you to transfer the money directly to XSProject’s Indonesian bank account. For these larger amounts, the bank fees are more cost effective. Bank details will be provided.
If you are based in Indonesia, you can make a direct bank transfer, mail in a check or drop the money off at our Jakarta office in person - whichever is most convenient for you.
Is my donation tax deductible?
If you are a US taxpayer and donate through the Global Giving website, then donations are tax deductible. If you are a UK taxpayer and give in GBP on the Global Giving website you may be able to claim an extra 25% if you are Gift Aid eligible. See more here.
Donations made directly to XSProject are not tax deductible.
How do we know we can trust you?
The Global Giving platform conducts rigorous checks before allowing organizations to accept donations through their website. Monthly project updates are posted on their website. Learn more about Global Giving's vetting process.
We have also been audited by the World Fair Trade Organization and awarded “Fair Trade Guaranteed” status for our business operations.
If you are in Jakarta, we welcome you to come and visit XSProject to see what we do first-hand.
