Rahma Worldwide

Our Commitment

To Our Donors,
and Staff

At Rahma Worldwide, we’re driven by a single, unwavering purpose: to alleviate suffering and empower individuals and communities in crisis around the world. We believe this commitment extends beyond our immediate actions and encompasses the way we operate and manage resources.

A Commitment to Financial Transparency and Accountability:

    • Efficient Allocation of Resources: We strive to maximize the impact of your donations by allocating over 93% of our expenditures directly to field programs and vital public education initiatives. This dedication to financial efficacy is a cornerstone of our operations.

    • Rigorous Oversight: Our commitment to transparency extends to independent audits and rigorous financial oversight. We proudly hold the highest ratings from leading watchdog agencies, including the American Institute of Philanthropy, demonstrating our unwavering commitment to ethical and responsible financial practices.

    • Moderate and Transparent Compensation: At Rahma Worldwide, we believe in fair and transparent compensation for all staff. We maintain moderate salaries across all levels, ensuring our resources are primarily directed towards our mission rather than administrative costs. For example, our Executive Director’s salary is capped at two times the lowest full-time position within the organization.

    • Responsible Resource Management: We manage our administrative expenses with the utmost care. We prioritize cost-effective practices, such as booking travel in economy class and utilizing budget-friendly accommodations. Additionally, we maintain a financial reserve equivalent to six months of operating costs, ensuring our ability to respond swiftly to emergencies and sustain our field programs even through periods of reduced donations.

Building Trust through Ethical Fundraising:

    • Respectful Communication: We communicate with our donors and supporters through various channels, including email, mail, and phone, with the utmost respect and consideration. We value your support and strive to be transparent in our communication, clearly outlining our programs and their impact.

    • Protecting Your Information: We take the security of your personal and financial information very seriously. We implement robust measures to ensure your data remains confidential and secure, safeguarding your privacy and trust.

    • Combating Fraudulent Activities: We are vigilant in protecting our reputation and the integrity of our organization. If you suspect you have been contacted by someone posing as a Rahma Worldwide representative, please do not hesitate to contact our Donor Services Team immediately at info@rahmaww.org.

Needs-Based Program Implementation:

    • Independent Assessments: Our experienced teams conduct thorough and independent assessments to determine the most pressing medical and humanitarian needs in each crisis zone. We prioritize the most vulnerable populations and work closely with local medical professionals to gather accurate and comprehensive information.

    • Collaboration and Coordination: We actively collaborate with local authorities and other humanitarian organizations to ensure our interventions are coordinated and address existing capacities and resources. This collaborative approach maximizes impact and avoids duplication of efforts.

    • Clear Objectives and Monitoring: Before launching any program, we establish clearly defined quantitative and qualitative objectives. These objectives are regularly reviewed and adjusted as needed to ensure we remain responsive to evolving needs. We implement a standardized data collection system and conduct ad-hoc surveys to measure the effectiveness of our programs and continuously improve our impact.

Direct and Accountable Operations:

    1. Independent Action: We believe in the importance of direct and independent action in delivering aid. Our field staff have the freedom to communicate with beneficiaries, assess needs independently, allocate resources effectively, and directly participate in delivering assistance.

    1. Direct Management: Rahma Worldwide maintains full control over all aspects of our field programs. We do not delegate management responsibility to third parties, ensuring that all resources and services are exclusively utilized for our humanitarian mission.

    1. Accountability for Resources: We are committed to ensuring that all resources entrusted to us, whether financial or in-kind, are used exclusively for humanitarian purposes. We implement rigorous program funding and implementation procedures to guarantee transparency and accountability in every aspect of our work.

Our commitment to our donors, beneficiaries, and staff goes beyond delivering aid. It’s about building trust, ensuring transparency, and maximizing the impact of your generosity.

We are unwavering in our dedication to ethical and responsible practices, and we believe this commitment is essential to achieving our mission of alleviating suffering and empowering individuals and communities in need.
