Responsible Charity

Reasons Charity Has Failed in Uganda

Charities have failed in Uganda because those receiving money are not held accountable for how the money is spent and because the money was given without any planning on how it should be spent!!!!!

The blog at the link below explains in detail why charities have failed in Uganda in the past and should be read by those in Uganda wanting support and those interested in helping Ugandan’s achieve self reliance.

It’s very important charity providers don’t give to dishonest people who are likely to abuse or use those in their care.

Good Objectives

  1. Help maintain survival
  2. Provide a means to end the need for charity by setting up self sustaining enterprises.

Charity that perpetuates poverty by inculcating patterns of reliance behaviour rather than independence & self reliance is not responsible charity but results in enslaving those who perceive themselves in need of help.

Sometimes the more charitable action is to educate and awaken people to possibilities rather than simply give financial aid which can engender laziness and dependence.

Necessity is the mother of invention. There were no handouts for the early settlers of Australia, their necessity created their self reliance. Africa is wealthy in resources, sunshine, water, pure air, natural fauna & flora, and minerals. The question should be asked why do the African people live in poverty. They must be compelled to cooperate with each other and coordinate resources to break the chains that hold them in poverty.

Having a plan to achieve self reliance and sticking to that plan is the only way to avoid the “hand out poverty trap”.

Forming A Trust Relationship

Applicants seeking charity cannot expect providers to trust them without making reasonable efforts at presenting proof of their honesty, reliability and integrity.

Those seeking charity from strangers need to realize they have a duty to provide to the best of their ability as much information as they can to answer the following questions in order to help prove their credibility:-

  1. Who they are. E.g. Provide some form of photo identification
  2. Exactly where they are. E.g a google map with a location marked on it.
  3. Why they think they should be supported.
  4. Why they can’t get support from the local existing charitable organizations e.g provide correspondence between themselves and local institutions or why they can’t or won’t make an effort to obtain local support.
  5. What they are currently doing to support themselves and the orphans they claim are in their care. e.g. providing proof such as payslips showing wages and/or bank statement.
  6. What their current situation is e.g. Their current weekly monthly income, numbers of those in their care numbers of boys girls their ages and state of health.
  7. What their needs are.
  8. How they intend to spend the charity provided e.g. Food, clothing, shelter, medical assistance, education
  9. Their plans for becoming self reliant.
  10. Any attempts they have made to obtain accreditation e.g. Applications to become accredited with their government. Or the reasons why they haven’t or won’t apply for accreditation. Attempting accreditation & proof thereof will increase trust.
  11. Why they decided to look after orphans rather then putting them in the care of existing accredited charitable organizations like Child Link Foundation https://childlinkfound.org.
  12. Proof that those in their care are not being used as charitable bait.
  13. Why the decision was made to provide for those in their care when it’s claimed that personal resources are so limited.
  14. Independent Referees – Written References from people with community standing that confirm the claimants good character, trustworthiness and that confirm the truthfulness of claims made.

The more evidence applicants can provide that help answer these questions the more chance they have in engendering trust.

Prevarication and efforts to deflect doubts will only go towards proving that the applicant/s are untrustworthy.

People are prudent not to trust statements made without proof.

Referees

Applicants should be prepared to make an effort to obtain written references from people with good standing who are prepared to sign a document confirming their statements as being the truth the whole truth & nothing but the truth.

Maintaining Trust

Money given as a donation carries with it expectations and implied conditions that the money will be spent as promised or expected.

Once applicants have a supporter who has provided financial support those who received the charity have an obligation to:-

  1. Keep the supporters identity and donation private i.e. Secret.
  2. Provide proof of where the donations are being spent. E.g receipts of purchases.

The providers have an obligation to do their best to hold their beneficiary accountable by insisting on proof their donations are being used responsibly.

Funding Methods

1 GOFUNDME CAMPAIGNS

  1. Gofundme campaigns are expensive to run, complex to setup and often require donators to trust the creator of the fund (the trustee) as well as the beneficiary (the donatee or recipient of the funds). The trustee has to transfer collected funds to the recipient using a money sending service which costs more money. Gofundme campaigns involve setting up a stripe account (similar to automated paypal account) which is a holding account before the funds move manually or automatically into the trustees bank account, so that money can be refunded if the donator changes their mind within the legally required 72 hour cooling off period.
  2. Gofundme, stripe, money sending service & currency conversion all come out of the collected funds which means the recipient or beneficiary receives less.
  3. The trustee is responsible for maintaining the Gofundme setup which is time consuming and can be stressful they are also responsible for record keeping to ensure if an audit is requested that all funds can be easily accounted for so people can have trust in the process and they must ensure transparency by ensuring people who contribute can see the money trail to resolve any possible doubts.
  4. The advantage of using Gofundme is it enables donators to donate using their credit and visa enabled direct debit cards.
  5. One of the major disadvantages with the GoFundme setup is the disconnect between the total donated displayed on the Gofundme website and the actual amount available in the underlying stripe account and the amount transferred to the recipient. The different amounts often creates confusion and mistrust.

2 PAYPAL METHOD

  1. The recipient (people seeking charity) sets up on the internet a paypal account and donators send money via paypal to the recipient using the paypal email handle setup by the recipient.
  2. This is very easy for donators to use to send money and they automatically receive receipts.
  3. It is easy for recipients to advertise with a paypal link and their email address as their paypal account handle or identification.
  4. The trustee is paypal.
  5. There is no maintenance process.
  6. The disadvantage is currency exchange costs involved for the donators which can be a large percentage of the funds.
  7. Another disadvantage is the recipient needs a bank account, a home address and must go through the process of linking their bank account with their paypal account which can be complex for people not familiar with the internet and technology.
  8. The recipient must provide the records to show where the money is being spent to maintain donators trust.

3 USING A MONEY TRANSFER SERVICE

  1. Simplest method for recipients.
  2. Using services like WorldRemit or Western Union cost a tiny amount compared to the transfer currency exchange rates incurred in a normal bank to bank transfer.
  3. The recipient doesn’t need a bank account to receive the funds.
  4. The disadvantage is that the donor must use the money transfer service so only determined donators will donate.
  5. The recipient should keep receipts & provide evidence to show that the donated money was spent in accordance with the agreed charity to maintain the trust relationship if they wish to receive further support. They should also supply plans for their ideas for future expansion & how they hope to support themselves in the future. This is so donators can see that the beneficiary (people receiving the donations) are using part of the funds to become self reliant so that eventually they will not need support. If this is not done charity can become a poverty trap.
  6. To set this up the provider will require the recipients photo ID, their address and their mobile phone or email address so the recipient can receive the donation identification number that will enable them to get the money sent.
  7. If the recipient has a bank account and it’s agreed to deposit money there the provider will need the bank account number and banks identification swift code number which is found on the internet.

Responsibilities of Providers

  1. Should insist the beneficiary provides proof of their good faith as described above.
  2. Amount To Donate – It’s a good idea to donate small donations of say $10 or $20. Donating large amounts can put the beneficiary in danger of being robbed, or of being tempted to spend the money on inappropriate things that were not expected. Large amounts tend to breed dishonesty.
  3. At the first suspicion of impropriety and dishonesty you should cease your donations.
  4. Insist on proof of where the donations are being spent.
  5. Insist on a plan for financial independence otherwise your donating will enslave the beneficiary rather than help them towards self sufficiency.

SEDITION

sedition

sɪˈdɪʃ(ə)n/
noun
noun: sedition; plural noun: seditions
  1. conduct or speech inciting people to rebel against the authority of a state or monarch.
    synonyms: incitement (to riot/rebellion), agitation, rabble-rousing, fomentation (of discontent), troublemaking, provocation, inflaming;

    rebellion, revolt, insurrection, rioting, mutiny, insurgence, insurgency, subversion, civil disorder, insubordination, disobedience, resistance, defiance
    “advocating multiparty democracy is considered sedition”

Effectively defunct for nearly half a century, sedition laws returned to public notice in 2005 when changes were included in an Anti-terrorism Bill announced by Prime Minister Howard prior to a “counter-terrorism summit” of the Council of Australian Governments on 27 September. The Bill was introduced on 3 November and passed into law on 6 December 2005 after government amendments adding some protection for the reporting of news and matters of public interest were introduced in response to community pressure. Schedule 7 of the Anti-Terrorism Bill (No. 2) 2005, repealed Sections 24A to 24E of the Crimes Act (1914) and reintroduced them, along with several new classes of offence, in a Division 80—Treason and sedition. Crimes in this division now attract a maximum penalty of seven years’ imprisonment.

CRIMES ACT 1914 – SECT 24AA

http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/legis/cth/consol_act/ca191482/s24aa.html

The definition of “seditious intention” originally in Section 24A of Crimes Act 1914 has become (as amended): An intention to effect any of the following purposes: (a) to bring the Sovereign into hatred or contempt; (b) to urge disaffection against the following: (i) the Constitution; (ii) the Government of the Commonwealth; (iii) either House of the Parliament; (c) to urge another person to attempt, otherwise than by lawful means, to procure a change to any matter established by law in the Commonwealth; (d) to promote feelings of ill-will or hostility between different groups so as to threaten the peace, order and good government of the Commonwealth.

We do not have free speech in Australia. If you knock the government you can be charged with Sedition and if proven guilty be incarcerated for a maximum of 7 years.

In 1949 a case came before the High Court involving the utterance of what were alleged to be seditious words: Burns v Ransley. Gilbert Burns, a member of the Communist Party of Australia (CPA) said that in any war between Soviet Russia and the West, the CPA would fight on the side of the Soviets. Burns was convicted of uttering seditious words under the Crimes Act 1914. Burns appealed to the High Court but his appeal was dismissed. Burns argued that the Commonwealth did not have Constitutional power to make laws with respect to crime, and could not make political criticism a criminal offence. However, Latham CJ said that section 61 read in conjunction with section 51(xxxix) allows the Commonwealth to make laws to protect itself. His Honour noted that while Parliament does not have the power to enact legislation punishing political criticism, ‘excitement to disaffection against a Government goes beyond political criticism’. The last prosecution was in 1960, when Department of Native Affairs officer Brian Cooper was prosecuted for urging “the natives” of Papua New Guinea to demand independence from Australia. He was convicted, and committed suicide four years later, after losing his appeal.

COURTS DO NOT ACCEPT COMMERCIAL LIEN PRINCIPLE

The courts do not accept the principle that a commercial lien relies on.

http://ozff.org/freedomfighters/CommerceLawMaxims.html

6. An unrebutted affidavit stands as truth in commerce. See 1 Pet. 1:25; Heb. 6:13- 15. Legal maxim: “He who does not deny, admits.”

This commercial law maxim also referenced here http://fduniversity.wikifoundry.com/page/Commercial+Maxims

Is not accepted in Court.

See

http://www.austlii.edu.au/cgi-bin/sinodisp/au/cases/nsw/NSWSC/2015/201.html?stem=0&synonyms=0&query=%22commercial+lien%22

Master Bowman agreed that the Letters Patent appointing the Governor-General, which for Major-General Michael Jeffery and several of his predecessors were clearly stamped with the Great Seal of Australia, should perhaps have been stamped with the Great Seal of Britain instead. But the success of Mr Fitzgibbon ended at this particular concession. “Essentially it is a matter of procedure and not necessarily of substance – that the wrong seal was used,” Master Bowman found in the judgement. “The claim should be struck out on the basis of hopelessness … and, where appropriate, embarrassment.” Accordingly, the judgment of Master Bowman provides no support whatsoever for the contentions for which it is cited in the so-called affidavit/ commercial lien . Secondly, the repeated proposition that the affidavit, being unrefuted, “stood as law and fact” is equally nonsense.

Unrebutted affidavits do not necessarily conclusively establish the facts deposed to in them.

They are evidence of facts. They do not establish them conclusively. Even less do they establish law. Thirdly, the idea that somehow by serving the so-called commercial lien on the Deputy Commissioner or anyone else those parties become bound by it is equally nonsense. Mere receipt or notice of a document does not mean that the recipient acknowledges, accepts or becomes bound by it. In the course of legal proceedings, parties are served with statements of claim and affidavits on a regular basis. The receipt of those documents does not of itself mean that the party is bound by or party to it, any more than receipt of a letter by an addressee means the party accepts its truth or becomes bound by it. The “affidavit/ commercial lien ” demonstrates no defence whatsoever to the winding-up proceedings. The court orders that: (1) The defendant Glenevan Pty Limited be wound up in insolvency; and (2) Christopher Chamberlain of Chamberlains SBR, Suite 103, Level 1, Wollundry Chambers, Johnston Street, Wagga Wagga in the State of New South Wales be appointed Liquidator. (3) The plaintiff’s costs payable out of the assets of the corporation be fixed in the sum of $5,500 inclusive of GST.

 

Moon is only 70 Miles Wide

The coming solar eclipse over American will prove beyond doubt that the moon is less than or equal to 70 miles wide.

A shadow of an object is the same size or larger than the object. This is an observable irrefutable fact.

The width of the shadow of the moon on the Earth as it blocks the sun’s rays will give an estimate of the moon’s width.

The rays of the sun are parallel they cannot converge as is often depicted in pseudo scientific explanations.

False Claims Motu Proprio of July 11 2013 Released Trust Funds

I’ve read that some people think the Pope Francis Papal Decree Motu Proprio of July 11th 2013 somehow closed down corporations world wide and released trust funds held by the Vatican via Birth Certificate bonds to the public benefitiaries. You can see these types of posts on youtube here You’re Wealthy Beyond Your Wildest Dreams by Harvey Dent posted july 8th 2017 and JULY 07 2017 POPE FRANCIS DESTROYS ALL CORPORATION RELEASING ALL THE TRUST FUNDS TO HUMANITY – By EMPOWR MARKETINGS posted July 7th 2017 . Both these YouTube postings rely on this article Pope Francis makes a law..destroys every Corporation in the world and this article which makes all manner of assumptions Papal Decree of July 11, 2013 .

If you read the Popes letter for yourself without relying on the interpretations put on the various statements you’ll soon come to the same conclusion I have that people are reading things in this that simply aren’t there.

Reading the Papal letter shows it does not close down any corporations. In fact the contents of the letter never mentions closing down anything. Obviously all the Pope is doing is saying that criminals in the Vatican will be subject to the Justice system and will be extradited if they have broken the law according to the existing criminal code existing at Vatican City at the time of the alleged offense and that this also applies to Vatican officials.

Don’t be fooled. Always read the source information. There are many people spruiking false ideas.

It’s interesting that these false claims appeared around July 7th 2017. I’m very aware of numbers and how important numbers are to these mason types.

Victoria Police Violence

Vicpol over reacted at swingers party shooting & traumatising venue staff and patrons even though they had been told the patrons were using fake plastic guns. Vicpol to be sued for damages Melb club may sue after police shooting

i think this violent behaviour is a direct result of Victorian Police being trained in American ways as a counter terrorist military force. It seems obvious to me these thugs are itching to use their new found skills in intimidation and violence and jump at any and every excuse. They arrogantly pretend to be above the law and have total disregard for any damage they inflict on innocent civilians.

This represents a leftist alignment in our politics and the powers that be using the police to cower the public. I think those running Australia’s unlawful government are scared that the people are awakening to the fraud being perpetuated against them.

This militiarization of police is also an American phenomenon and their training has resulted in trigger happy officers. The recent murder of Dr Justine Damond by Somali Muslim Officer in Minnesota is a case in point.

This destroys any confidence and trust people have in police protection and points to severe problems with today’s society.
