Every cent you donate is used directly for the projects in India to support orphan children and girls with disabilities. There are no costs for advertising, promotion or personnel.

100% of your donations are devolved to the projects in India.

We do have information leaflets but they are sposored by individuals (mainly from the management team) and are not paid with donors money. Our trips to India are paid by the volunteers themselves (flight, trasportation, food and housing), which shows our team's great commitment to the cause.

Kolours Association (based in Switzerland) and Kolours Italia ONLUS (based in Italy) have no employees: we are all volunteers and receive no compensation for our work.

Kolours Association is recognized as an "ente di pubblica utilità" in Switzerland and it is therefore exempted from taxation. Associazione Kolours Italia is recognized as ONLUS in Italy, therefore donating to the charity through a bank transfer make you eligible for taxation benefits in Italy.
