As of last week we received our NGO registration number from the NGO board. This makes us official. It had been our hope that we would receive the reg. certificate on the same day, but unfortunately not!
The board told us that it will be a further 3 weeks til we have the certificate. We have to have the certificate for the Ministry of Finance to grant us with the tax exemption so we can receive donations. It is hard to say how accurate this ‘3 weeks’ will be, but to be on the safe side I’ll guess that it is likely it will be the beginning of June when we are finally through all of the bureaucracy and ready to roll. God willing!
