Production Proposals / January recurring payment for Kairos Children's Fund
« on: December 11, 2018, 12:51:11 pm »
Most of you are familiar with Kairos Children's Fund already. Biblepay is supporting 10 of the Kairos kids at the moment. We are a charity in the Philippines sponsoring children's education.  The money we receive goes to prepay for the next month.

I am requesting 750,000 BBP, which at the current rate is $260 (as of Dec 12). This will be enough to support these children for another month, but not much else besides their bare allowances (unless the rate goes up). The money will be used for their transportation, lunch, projects, and school fees. The families will also be given a monthly 'rice allowance'.

In December, the exchange was about the same, and we traded $230, which was enough to cover the allowances but nothing more. Our prayer is that Biblepay will do better and that more people will decide to sponsor directly.

The monthly amount per child is $20 for elementary students or $22 for high school students. We have 5 elementary and 5 high school students at the moment with Biblepay, so the cost is $200 per month. You can see the details below or on the website.

General Discussion / Kairos Children's Fund: Call for sponsors
« on: December 03, 2018, 03:45:12 am »
Biblepay community,

   Thanks for your support to BiblePay and to all of the charities it helps. I'm so grateful for all the help, especially as a small charity.
   You might want to consider sponsoring a child for a year. Your money will help them to go to school - it pays for transportation, food, homework, and other school fees. Some of the children in the program would not go to school otherwise.
   We are trying to raise money for their Christmas party and some gifts. Since we have some money saved, we have enough for a small party, but any additional amount is a big blessing.
   If you would like to sponsor or to give a one-time-gift, please visit our website: kcf.winnegor.com

God Bless,
  Andrew Scribner
  Kairos Children's Fund director

General Discussion / Kairos Children's Fund Web Site Feedback
« on: November 27, 2018, 12:01:34 am »
I would appreciate feedback on our website (https://kcf.winnegor.org) - I am the only person working on it at the moment. We had a volunteer but he backed out.

Also, how can we improve the accountability section without being compromising the kids' privacy at all? I am giving an account to all sponsors (direct sponsors, that is)

However, I might consider giving a generic account for all BiblePay community. What do you think?

Thanks!

General Discussion / Kairos Children's Fund

Kairos Children's Fund is a program that helps kids who otherwise would not go to school. We give them allowances for transportation, food, and homework, and pay their school fees.

If it wasn't for you, most of these kids would not be getting an education at all. We believe that this is the primary way for their family to be empowered and rise out of poverty.

Many Filipino families trying to educate their children are facing numerous financial challenges. Though technically free in the Philippines, there are a lot of expenses. Unlike the USA, the Philippine government does not pay for the things that American children are privileged to receive.

Last month and this month I requested 750,000 BBP, which at the current rate will be more than enough to support these children for a month, and help them with some other misc. expenses.

For those BiblePay 'members', a big thank you from our scholars and from the organizers of Kairos.

Since it is almost Christmas, we are saving money from other sources for small gifts and a Christmas party. Click https://www.gofundme.com/philippinekids if you want to give.

Anything that is left over generally goes into our general fund, This can be used for various small things, not often admin fees (which is minimal since we have no salaried workers), Since it is almost Christmas, we are saving money from other sources for small gifts and a Christmas party.

The monthly amount per child is $20 for elementary students or $22 for high school students. We have 5 elementary and 5 high school students at the moment, so the cost is $200 per month. You can see the details below or on the website.

General Support / Error creating proposal
« on: August 06, 2018, 10:17:03 am »
When trying to create a proposal I get this error:
"Error creating collateral transaction for governance object. Please check your wallet balance and make sure your wallet is unlocked"
Any ideas what could be causing this?
I do have enough money and my wallet is not locked

In June KCF (Kairos Children's Fund) received 365,000BBP, which was used to sponsor 10 children for 3 months (June to August), as well as help provide rice to the families. Although the sponsorships are until the end of August, I would like to pre-pay the scholarship for another 3 months if possible.
Since the next superblock is due in September, I'd like to get this proposal out as soon as possible.
The monthly amount per child is $20 for elementary students or $22 for high school students. We have 5 elementary and 5 high school students at the moment, so the cost is $200 per month. You can see the details below or on the website.

1. I would like to ask for 300,000BBP.
2. This would help us also with the rice allowance (given monthly per child) and pre-pay scholars for another few months.
3. This will also help us to pay for some school expenses for both high school and elementary

I will attach below the original proposal with background information on KCF.

Hi! My name is Andrew Scribner, and I am a pastor in the Philippines. I'm an American, from Maine, USA.

We have a program called Kairos Children's Fund. We primarily provide sponsorships for kids to go to school.

Education in the Philippines is not free - tuition is, but there are a lot of expenses. There are miscellaneous fees, then parents must provide lunches, transportation, uniforms, and homework.
Many of the children from poor families either don't go school at all, because parents can't afford these things. Many kids go to school walking, and often don't get enough to eat. They often get poor grades because they are bullied, hungry, or ashamed. (I have more information on our FB page (see below)

We provide an allowance for the kids, and we also pay school fees. We have a volunteer who visits the school, pays the fees, and checks on the children.

The cost for an elementary child is $20 a month, while a high school child (grades 9-12) is $22 (this is based on the current exchange rate)

From that, we give a weekly allowance and pay their "miscellaneous fees."

My proposal is for a sponsorship of 5 elementary, and 5 high school children:

Since there are nice months left in the school year the cost per child would be:
elementary $20 x 9 = $180
high school $22 x 9 = $198

elementary $180 x 5 =    $900
high school $198 x 5 =    $990
total                               = $1,890

If it would also be ok, we could make it a flat $2k if the community wants to donate to the rice allowance, which we call the "Bugas nga Gasa" (meaning rice gift)

We have a rice gift which we give to families. I propose that 110 would go to the rice allowance, which we call the "Bugas nga Gasa" (meaning rice gift)

This could be spread out over a couple of superblocks, since we don't need the money all at once.

You could take a look at our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/kairoschildrensfund/) or by joining our messenger community (type: @kairoschildrensfund). We are working on a website as soon as possible.

I have been in touch with Jaap Geurts van Kessel about this. We have exchanged several emails this and last week.

Please see our FB page and join our messenger group. You may email me with any questions at scribners@gmail.com

By the way, I love the Biblepay concept, and I love how it is community driven (including sponsorships.)
I also think the transparency of the whole system is great.

By the way, $22 is about Php1,100.
We give Php900 to cover their daily needs.
       Php100 will cover any misc. school fees.
The exess P100 helps us with overhead.

Thank you!
