Where Does My Money Go?


  • Fund a 12 Buckets School Liaison in a primary school.  
    Along with recruiting, coordinating and equipping our mentors, the School Liaison collaborates with the school so that a tailored module of learning can be developed. Sustaining this role is critical to our ongoing success.

  • Ensure that the children and mentors participating in the 12 Buckets program are properly cared for. 
    It's vital that we uphold highest standards when it comes to the selection of mentors and the care of all our participants.  There are a lot of administrative processes acting as the non-visible backbone to our program and your generosity builds further strength into the core of our celebrated program.

  • Enable 12 Buckets to reward children for their outstanding achievements.  
    We think it's important to celebrate with vibrancy and meaningfully reward children for their achievements.  There are a few different ways this occurs and presently, we're working on a scholarship aspect to our reward system.
