For the safety, dignity and well being of our community, we do not allow members of the public to visit our community; however, we will be happy to arrange a meeting or phone call with you and our Founder and Executive Director and/or our Country Director to discuss our programs and work. Our “project sites” are the homes and schools of those we serve, not tourist attractions. The school our children attend is not a private school. Consequently, the Ministry of Education is very strict about making sure visitors do not interrupt the school day.
If you think you have a legitimate reason for visiting our project site, please contact us. Please complete all the information requested below for consideration by Catalyst Foundation staff, providing us with a clear understanding about the purpose of your visit and your expectations. If we are able to accommodate your visit, more information will be sent to you regarding our visitor policies and guidelines.
Please submit this form at least 4 weeks ahead of the date you wish to visit to enable us to process and plan. We regret that we cannot accept visits outside of working hours: after 16:00 Monday to Friday and all day over the weekend and national public holidays. We will respond to your request within a week of receiving this form.
If your visit is accepted, you will be required to produce a recent criminal record check from your country of origin or residence (as appropriate) prior to your visit.
Catalyst Foundation is a not for profit organization. We rely on the generous support of trusted partners. As part of our transparent policy, we ensure that all donor funds are fully allocated to the purpose for which they were granted and are not used to subsidize visitor or marketing expenses. As such, a fee will be applied as a compulsory contribution to the organization, and in order to cover the legitimate costs associated with planning and facilitating your visit, including additional time of staff, logistics, transport, and other direct costs incurred.
1. Individual Visitors: USD $100
2. Group Visit: Visits will be limited to 5 persons per group at a cost of USD $250 unless pre-arranged and agreed upon with the Catalyst management and staff.
Please note that it is of utmost importance to us that our programs and operations remain transparent and that donors continue to have access to our work and sites, as required. As such, please do notify us if there is any issue in making a contribution, and we will be happy to discuss and consider your circumstances.
