Donations for the Schools and Orbus Future Projects (OFP) including wells/pumps, solar projects, tree planting, fuel-efficient stoves, building orphan homes, skills development centre and university are tax deductible in Australia as part of Orbus’ commitment to providing relief and development in Malawi.
As a not-for-profit, volunteer run charity Orbus in Australia has historically had almost no administration costs. Since 2007 close to 100% of donations have been used directly for projects. No Australian management or volunteers have been paid or had their expenses paid from general donations made to Orbus. However, given the planned OFP expansion it may be that a paid worker will be required to help implement the new projects from 2023 or 2024. This ideally would be a separately funded worker through specifically raised funds through Orbus (tax-deductible).
If you are interested in supporting the Schools, Future Projects please specify on your donation.
As of April 2017, some donations may be made with specific instructions/requests by the donors for the use of the funds. Otherwise all general donations are used directly to further the Orbus school and farm project in Malawi. Your donations are not taken for granted and are greatly appreciated. Thank you.
